Down the stretch they come. Two wounded Mustangs in the final leg of two separate races. With eight games left in each of their seasons, The Master's College's men's and women's teams are in danger of missing the NAIA National Tournament.

Tom Barber's goal is to spread Jesus' word. So he goes on foot and tries to spread that message. He encounters all kinds of people - the mildly interested, those who dismiss Jehovah's Witnesses and those who listen. Then there was the old man. Barber found the old man by going door to door on the outer edge of Canyon Country in 2006. Talk began about the Bible. It soon turned to baseball. And something ...
