Ben Zobrist Study Series – Part I
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
-Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
Tampa Bay Rays All-Star Ben Zobrist wasn’t drafted by Major League Baseball out of high school. In fact, he wasn’t even offered a baseball scholarship to play in college. Yet, after attending a skills showcase the summer after his senior year, one college coach saw potential in Zobrist and offered him a position on the team.
Now one of the brightest young infielders in the game, Zobrist has experienced a divine path to success—both on the field and off. Just before the start of the 2010 season, Zobrist sat down with FCA’s Sharing the Victory magazine to talk about that career, his family and, most importantly, his faith in Jesus Christ.
While the full-length interview is available online at fcaresources.com, today’s Impact Play will feature the first installment of Sharing the Victory’s four-part video study series based on the interview with Zobrist.

As a Christian, what does it mean that Christ lives in you?
How does that affect the way you live? How does it affect the way you compete? How should it affect the way you live and compete?
Ben Zobrist says that when we understand that Christ is living and operating through us, we will be free of pressure. Think about that statement and explain what it means.
Read Galatians 2:20. What does it mean to be “crucified with Christ”?
What do you need to change today to begin letting Christ live through you more clearly?
