Peavy, Colts, Alexander, and Easley

First of all, I missed the article for Padres pitcher Jake Peavy in the list of articles of Christian players nominated for MLB's Roberto Clemente Award for community service, so I'll include it now. Here's a quote from him about why he gives back:

"We're so blessed financially that I feel great to help out," Peavy said. "It's something I'm fortunate enough to do for my charity work in San Diego and Alabama. Anything I can do to help, I'm going to continue to do."

Here's the article:

Here's an article about the St. Vincent Children's Hospital in Indianapolis being renamed the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent after Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and his wife Ashley donated an unspecified amount of money to the hospital. The hospital approached the Mannings about the name change. The hospital is one of two children's hospitals in Indianapolis, the other being Rily Hospital for Children. Here's the article, which also includes a video too:

Next, a good article about Colts head coach Tony Dungy and about how others see him and his Christian faith:

Here's a great article about how Dungy reached out to a little boy in a wheelchair at one of his book signings over the summer:

Here's a quote from a Q & A article with Colts offensive tackle Tony Ugoh:

Don't want to get you fined by your teammates for saying nice things about them, but you seem like you fit right in with the personalities of this [offensive] line. "Yeah, definitely. I'm blessed to be on this team because we do have a great group of guys, not only great players, but personality-wise, they're all very good. They've been a tremendous help to me."

Here's the article:

Next, a good Christian article about the David Barham and his family, who helped raise former Oklahoma and current Vikings linebacker Rufus Alexander:

Lastly, an article about Mets utility player Damion Easley, a Christian, and his lost opportunity to finally play in the playoffs this year. He's second on the list of current players with most games played without reaching the playoffs, and the Mets are in line to make the playoffs this year. However, Easley tore ligaments in his ankle a few weeks ago and will likely be unable to play in the playoffs at all. Here's the article:
