Jeremy Affeldt joined the San Francisco Giants front office as a Community Ambassador prior to the 2016 season. In his role, Affeldt represents the organization at various in-season and offseason community events in the Bay Area and also attends the Giants Spring Training Camp in Scottsdale, Arizona, serving as a guest instructor.
The former left-handed reliever was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the third round of the 1997 MLB June Amateur Draft and spent 14 years in the big leagues with Kansas City (2002-06), Colorado (2006-07), Cincinnati (2008) and San Francisco (2009-15), where he won three World Series Championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Through three postseasons with the Giants, Affeldt recorded 22 consecutive scoreless innings, a streak bettered only by Mariano Rivera. He was the winning pitcher in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series, pitching 2.1 innings of scoreless baseball before giving way to series MVP Madison Bumgarner, who finished the game.
Affeldt is an active leader to end human trafficking and modern day slavery, while also being an advocate to support and feed the hungry at home and around the globe. He's also the co-founder of Generation Alive, a non-profit organization that works to teach and inspire a generation of young people to act by serving others.
