I'm writing as the vice president of Champions for Christ and as Greg Ball's close friend for the past 17 years—but, more important, as the first pro athlete to become a part of CFC. Not only has Greg Ball been an ordained and licensed minister for the past 18 years, but he also has been a man of the highest personal integrity.

As a guest at the wedding, I was not stunned by Enis's comments, nor would I characterize his toast as unsettling. What you describe as a tongue-lashing was a challenge to family and friends to serve God without compromise.

While you question Greg Feste's ability to act as an agent because of lack of experience, were I a pro player, I'd rather have him representing me than a secular agent worried about money and not focused on the important things: Jesus Christ, family and happiness.

Stopping the Race
Thank you Rick Reilly for showing us that Ken Fox was more than just the name of one of the victims at the Michigan Speedway on July 26 (Next Time, Stop the Freaking Race, Aug. 17). He was a human being with a family and friends. It's a shame that CART and Michigan Speedway officials did not see him and the other victims in the same light.

When I heard about the deaths during the U.S. 500,I wondered why the race hadn't been stopped. Then I realized officials at Michigan Speedway had made the correct decision. Aside from the spectators killed, six fans were hospitalized. Those familiar with the track know that only a few roads lead out of there. Stopping the race would have caused mass confusion, and the ambulances would have had difficulty getting to the hospital.
