SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Receiving a college degree typically happens to students. Jeremy Affeldt earned one because he was considered a superb teacher.
On Feb. 5, Affeldt accepted an honorary bachelor's degree from Whitworth University, located in his hometown of Spokane, Wash. If Affeldt weren't pitching for the Giants, he quite possibly would be deepening his involvement in Whitworth's altruisic endeavors. After all, he and Whitworth are essentially teammates.
