The Chicago Cubs won the 2016 “World Series” and have become the new Major League Baseball champions.



Ben Zobrist has become the franchise’s first player ever to win the title of MVP.



The player celebrated the victory with other team members in a parade throughtout the streets of Chicago.



On his Twitter profile (with 85,000 followers), Zobrist defines himself as a “follower of Christ”.



After winning the title, the player tweeted:





“GRACE IS FOR EVERYONE”



In 2013, Zobrist appeared in a video produced by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.



“I want people to know that grace is for everyone. We all need grace. We all need Christ”, Zobrist said.



“I still have a lot to learn about what the love of Christ is like – that it's not just knowledge ... but it's allowing the truth to change you – allowing Christ's message of grace and hope and love through the cross, that that message is the message that changes the way we look at everything in our lives”.



 



FOWLER: “I KNOW GOD PUT ME HERE”



One of Zobrist´s teammates is Dexter Fowler. He served as the lineup’s leadoff man for the Cubs throughout the season and playoffs.



Fowler is also a committed Christian. “I know God put me on this platform to spread His Word. The best way I can share my faith is to lead by example and play with the joy He has given me as His child”.



 



Chicago Cubs player Dexter Fowler is also a Christian.



“Laying this game is just a stepping stone on my journey through life with Him. I pray that I embrace every opportunity that He puts in my path to share His message of salvation. And when I get weary because of the challenges and struggles in this life, I know that He is always there to renew my strength”, Fowler said.
