Affeldt the writer

Chris Haft of mlb.com has a long post about Jeremy Affeldt's autobiography -- 

Affeldt shares his story to stimulate readers and prompt them to care more about the world around them. As the book's title indicates, he's profoundly serious about this. That should come as no surprise to anybody who's familiar with Affeldt. Through his youth ministry, Generation Alive, Affeldt supports Not For Sale, an organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking. Affeldt also strives to help the hungry, thirsty and disadvantaged by partnering with organizations such as Something to Eat, the Global Orphan Project, Living Water International and One World Futbol.
"I truly believe in the concept of love your neighbor as yourself," Affeldt told MLB.com, referring to the familiar Scripture passage (Mark 12:31). "Whether you believe in God or not, that's still a concept we need, because it's the only way society can have any kind of sanity to it. Selfishness ruins a lot of things. I'm just trying to speak from that angle."
