As you will read in this book, Jeremy is not defined by baseball. He is defined and validated as a child and follower of the most high God. My hope is that this book will help define and validate you.'-Mike Sweeney5-Time American League All-Star16 seasons MLB'A compelling story of what happens when grace takes root.
