Not For Sale

Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt pitched one and a third innings in Game 3 of the World Series tonight, unfortunately though he didn't have any strikeouts. Why would I care about that little stat of a middle reliever? For each strikeout he throws, Affeldt donates $100 dollars to an organization called Not For Sale which fights human trafficking. So far this season he's had 44 strikeouts.

The topic of human trafficking is near and dear to my heart because my fiance researches the topic in her graduate studies work and also volunteers with organizations like Not For Sale that fight against trafficking.

Jeremy spent his first four and a half seasons with the Royals and so I have received quite a few of his cards through trades.
