Billy Sunday (1862–1935) was a charismatic American evangelist and former professional baseball player who gained widespread fame for his passionate and dynamic preaching during the early 20th century. Born in Ames, Iowa, Sunday began his career as a Major League baseball player before experiencing a religious conversion in the 1880s.
After leaving baseball, Sunday joined the ranks of the YMCA and later became associated with the Chicago-based Pacific Garden Mission. His fervent and theatrical preaching style drew large crowds, and he emerged as one of the most influential figures of the urban revivalist movement. Sunday’s sermons often focused on topics such as temperance, morality, and salvation.
Known for his fiery rhetoric, animated gestures, and a disdain for sinful behavior, Sunday’s revival meetings were characterized by energetic hymn singing and emotional appeals. He played a significant role in the temperance movement, advocating for the prohibition of alcohol. Sunday’s influence extended beyond the pulpit, and his radio broadcasts further amplified his message.
Billy Sunday’s impact on American evangelicalism and the broader culture persisted, making him a prominent figure in the history of religious revivalism in the United States. He continued his evangelistic work until his death in 1935.
