Rangers’ Evan Carter Donates All ‘Jesus Won’ Shirt Proceeds: ‘Share Our Faith’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Texas Rangers rookie Evan Carter declared his faith by wearing a shirt that read “Jesus Won” and has since donated the proceeds from selling those T-shirts to charity.

Movieguide® previously reported:

The 21-year-old wears a “JESUS WON” T-shirt in interviews and praises God even when he faces setbacks.

“On Sept. 8, ahead of his Major League debut, Carter told reporters he was grateful to God for the opportunity. For that interview and during batting practice, he was wearing a T-shirt proclaiming ‘Jesus Won.’ Carter singled in his first at-bat that day, helping to spark a turnaround for Texas,” Church Leaders reported.

Sports Spectrum observed, “To further express his faith, Carter has a tattoo on his left arm that stands for ‘God is greater than the highs and lows,’ and on his right wrist he often wears an ‘I Am Second’ bracelet.”

In an October Instagram post, the outfielder announced, “Get your Jesus Won shirt, support a great cause! My wife and I have partnered with FCA to bring the Jesus Won T-Shirt to you, and to support a great cause. You can represent the Texas Rangers by purchasing a blue and red shirt, or for our hometown people there is an orange and black option to represent the colors of local schools in our area. Both will have “EC 32” on the sleeve. Proceeds will help fund the programs below.”

“Our mission is to use the platform that baseball has blessed us with to give back to our community in Carter County, TN,” he continued. “Proceeds from your purchase of a Jesus Won t-shirt will jointly benefit two incredible programs in our community. One being Central Cares, a program from our home Church of Central Community Christian Church, which helps provide for children in impoverished situations. The second will be helping provide an environment for young baseball players in our area to succeed.”

A few days ago, Carter donated all $70,000 earned from shirt sales.

In an interview with WJHL, Carter said, “My wife [Kaylen] came up with the idea, and the next thing you know, 50 days later, here we are presenting some really big checks to people. And just it’s unbelievable how many people have come together to help us out, and God works in mysterious ways, man. This is really cool.”

“It’s spreading throughout the whole organization,” Carter said of the shirt and the message. “People who have never really tried to be a part of the Christian faith or anything, or part of a group like that, saw the shirts and started asking questions. It’s just a great opportunity for us to kind of share our faith and spread the Word a little bit.”

“Because he was only called up in September, Carter will still be eligible for the 2024 MLB season’s rookie awards. He hopes to continue his stellar play, not primarily to win individual awards or even back-to-back World Series titles, but to honor God and spread the Good News of the Gospel,” Sports Spectrum reported.
