Product Description

Jeremy Affeldt understands passion. With passion, his dream of being a Major League Baseball player became a reality in 2002 after being drafted right out high school by the Kansas City Royals. With passion, he battled injuries that plagued the early years of his career. With passion, he struck out the side of the Detroit Tigers line-up in the 8th inning of the final game of the 2012 World Series. But it doesn't end with baseball.

As an outspoken advocate against human trafficking and a committed servant against injustice, Jeremy Affeldt has made a significant mark in this world.

To Stir a Movement details Jeremy Affedt's journey from a military brat and self-centered, hot-tempered, high school athlete to a two-time World Series champ and Christ follower. Through this first-hand account, discover a side of Jeremy Affeldt that goes beyond the field. Whether helping the trafficked find freedom, the thirsty receive water, or the hungry obtain food, Jeremy Affeldt is using his voice to demolish the barriers that stand between everyday people and the injustice around them.
