BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Night of Champions, a gathering to focus on the faith of athletes, is coming to Bakersfield once again.
This year's event will take place on Friday, April 5, at the Riverlakes Church in Bakersfield.
It's being sponsored by the Kern County Chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
This year's featured speaker will be former major league pitcher Dave Dravecky, who played for the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants.
Dravecky was forced to retire after having cancer in his left arm. Former Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden was the featured speaker in 2012.
