Blake Bivens, a Double-A pitcher in the Tampa Bay Rays organization, found out on Facebook that his family had been killed last August and said he has been leaning on his faith to carry on.

Bivens’ wife, child and mother-in-law were killed in a small Virginia town, with police arresting Bivens’ brother-in-law and charging him with three counts of first-degree homicide.
