Alabama native Jake Peavy was born to hardworking parents who taught their children that nothing you achieve in life is worthwhile until you find a way to share it. That philosophy continues to be a driving force in his life and career.
Jake's parents made sacrifices to get him into St. Paul's Episcopal school, where he became a standout athlete before being drafted by the San Diego Padres. Since then he's been a MLB mainstay with the Chicago White Sox, the Boston Red Sox, and the San Francisco Giants. Fans, coaches, and teammates have come to rely on Jake's winning spirit and determination: he's made three All-Star Teams and is to date the only starting pitcher to win two consecutive World series, with two different teams, in two different leagues.
He's also the winner of the 2007 Cy Young Award, the 2012, Gold Glove, and remains the Padres' all-time leading pitcher. When he's not throwing fastballs, Jake devotes time to family, music, and the Jake Peavy Foundation. With Southern Falls, all of these have finally reached home base.
