Jonathan Edwards? Are you referring to the Massachusetts Puritan preacher? If so, Jonathan Edwards is considered one of the foremost theologians in American history. He was a reformed theologian (Calvinistic), and he wrote and spoke profusely on these matters. His "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" (a sermon, which we read in our lit books) is considered a major work in American literature, although, sadly, it does not represent Edwards' true belief in a loving God that wants all men to be saved. It is often misinterpreted because it is read out of context as an example of Puritan writings and thrown into the Puritan period in many American lit books. It can be much better understood if one reads the body of his works.
Edwards was also a missionary to the Native Americans. He went to Yale and played an important role in the Great Awakening (a period of religious revival in the mid-1700s). He had 11 children, so perhaps he may have played some simple sports with them like tossing a ball, etc., but you would have to consult his biography to find this answer.
