Brett's 50

Today Brett Butler celebrates the BIG 5-0! Brett & Eveline are long-time friends of Carol's and mine. Brett had an illustrious baseball career and we forged a strong friendship during those years.

Presently Brett is managing the Mobile BayBears, the Southern League AA affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The team is playing a 5-game road series against the Mississippi Braves and that's where we caught up with Brett & Eveline by phone this morning!

Brett successful defeated cancer towards the end of his playing career for which we thank God.

CONGRATULATIONS, Brett! Thanks for your consistent Christian testimony over the years. You and Eveline have been such a blessing to Epistle Sports Ministries and to Carol and me personally.

Have a blessed 50th!

Note: This photo of Brett & Eveline was taken back in 1991 during the Mid-Summer All Star Game festivities in Toronto! We were much younger then!


  1. You don't look like you've aged since then!

  2. Great post - what a neat ministry to hold up friends like this --- A gentle spirit David is priceless ----- refreshing to see this post -- it seems lately , I am just preaching - lol ------- this balance is what I need - your a friend indeed to many I think -

  3. I'm still amazed at how far-reaching your ministry is and how many athletes you know!
    Hope you, Carol and the boys have a great week-end. I've been keeping you all in my prayers, and I hope things are going well.


    p.s. I agree with Hebrews 11:1 :)
