An evangelist of great renown in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Billy Sunday (1862-1935) gained his first fame by playing major league baseball. Four years into his career with the Chicago White Sox, he met Jesus -- then retired from the game four years later to enter the Christian ministry. Sundays three hundred revivals, featuring his fiery preaching style, attracted an estimated one hundred million listeners.
