Billy Sunday, known as “the baseball evangelist”, was more than a preacher of the Gospel to Americans of the twentieth century. He was a legend, a star player for the Chicago White Stockings, running the bases in less than 14 seconds – a phenomenon of his day. But the call of the Lord was stronger than the roar of the crowd. He began preaching in 1896 and by 1915 he was holding revivals for tens of thousands of people per week. He was the man who galvanized religion into an active force against social evils, preaching a strange mixture of humor and hellfire that made his listeners take notice.
In 1911, Billy Sunday settled in Winona Lake, Indiana. The Billy Sunday Home Museum holds the belongings of the Sunday family. Tours are by appointment only.
