Mr. Greene is a member of the Baha'i Faith, which, as he has stated in previous interviews, has helped him in his baseball career. An intriguing statement, considering that it is widely believed in professional sports, especially among the "old school," that "getting religion" hampers a player's career, makes him less hungry to achieve and takes away his killer instinct.
Mr. Greene might beg to differ. He notes that "work done in the spirit of service is considered worship in the Baha'i Faith, and therefore it is not a separate area of my life."
Like other members of the Baha'i Faith, he studies the Baha'i Scriptures, known simply as the Writings, and prays every morning and evening, even during a game. And not the "Please God, just this once, I'll never ask for another thing again" variety. Rather it's to keep balance and not get too excited when things are going well or downcast when they're not.
