I like the nickname "Peacekeeper". It goes along with Jake's strong religious ties, but also speaks to the fact that he'll do whatever it takes to prevent violence, even if the violence begets violence. He won't allow a member of the opposing team to strike one of his teammates and he won't allow bats on the opposing team to strike baseballs.
Three things Jake Peavy does not want to see get struck:
- Very small children
- Very tall human beings
- Baseballs under his care
