The surprising conversion story of a Major League Baseball player


Darrell Miller had a plan to get his wife out of the Catholic Church, but it backfired …

When Darrell Miller, a former Major League Baseball player for the California Angels, met his Catholic wife, Kelly, he wanted to “convert her and get her outta the Church.” “I really felt like all Catholics were lost,” he says in a video produced by the Knights of Columbus.

But it was Kelly who ended up eventually converting him into the Church, first through his intrigue with the Eucharist and then in becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus. The Church has helped Miller find what matters most, and he has passed his devotion onto his son, Darrell Miller, Jr., also a pro baseball payer, who turned to God in his worst moments of enduring surgeries after a car accident that nearly derailed his career.

Watch the family’s story in the video above, and be sure to watch other videos from this series, including:
