Jeremy Affeldt was a seven-year Giants
veteran, 14-year Major Leaguer, three-time
World Series champion, a member of the
Giants “core four” pitching staff and is now the Giants Community Ambassador for the 2016 season.
Affeldt retired at the end of the 2015 season and will forever be a fan-favorite in San Francisco, not only for his performance on the field but also for the contributions he made off the field.
Affeldt’s instrumental performance in Game 6 of the 2010 National League Championship Series allowed the team to advance and eventually win their first-ever World Championship in San Francisco. With the score tied in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series, Affeldt struck out the Detroit Tigers power hitters Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Delmon Young consecutively in the 8th inning. In Game 7 of the 2014 World Series, he posted 2.1 scoreless innings of relief and was named winning pitcher. He pitched a scoreless outing in 22 consecutive postseason games, the second-longest streak in MLB history, second only to the legendary Mariano Rivera.
Off the field, he made a significant impact on the community. He is a strong and vocal advocate against human trafficking, introducing the Giants to Not For Sale, and has given generously of his time to mentor and motivate the homeless and at-risk youth through his support of Larkin Street Youth Services. Affeldt also runs his own non-profit, Generation Alive, a movement geared to help youth learn to live compassionately through acts of service.
"...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins and will heal their land."
