‘I love this shirt’: Texas Rangers rookie shows Jesus in first week in MLB

Major League Baseball newcomer Evan Carter is using his platform to point people to Jesus.

The Texas Rangers rookie had five successful days. In fact, he’s already hit his first home run in the big leagues. But that’s not the only reason he’s getting attention.

Carter, 21, wore a T-shirt earlier this month boldly proclaiming his faith. The words “Jesus Won” were printed in red and white on a blue shirt the young athlete wore during warm-ups.

The outfielder’s manager, Bruce Bochy, praised Carter for his on-field character.

“We said, even going back to spring training, that the patience and discipline that he showed back then, at the age of 20, was not something that happened by chance,” he recently told the Dallas Morning News. “He worked there. That’s what he does all the time. He tries to reduce the strike zone and get pitchers to come to him. He doesn’t panic twice. He just gives you quality bats. He is advanced for his age. That’s why he’s here.

Bochy also praised Carter during an interview on 105.3 The Fan, crediting the rookie for his cheerful spirit.

“It’s not worth it if you’re not having fun,” Carter replied. “It’s definitely…it’s the job you chose, so you better love it.” I do. I love the game and I love playing, I love competing, so, really, it’s a joyful thing for me.
