Bible Card Sunday - Jeff King

Jeff King was the first overall pick of the 1986 amateur draft and was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates.  He made his debut on June 2, 1989 and went on to play 11 seasons for the Pirates and Royals, and was a key member of the Pirates Division Championship teams in 1990, 1991, and 1992.  He's also #69 on the Royals Top 100.

Plagued by back injuries most of his career he still had fielding percentages above the league average at first, second, and third bases and a range factor above average at both infield corners.  He abruptly retired 21 games into the 1999 season citing a lack of love for the game that he once had.

Jeff's favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:28
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."

I got this signed Jeff King card through a trade on
