by Jim Tietjens (Author), Jeff Kuchno (Author)

Jim Tietjens has been called by many one of the greatest goalkeepers the soccer hotbed of St. Louis has ever produced. A state champion in high school. An All-American in college. A member of the Youth United States National Team. And a professional goalkeeper.

Following his athletic career, Jim transitioned successfully to the business world. As an accomplished sports marketer and sporting goods specialist, he enjoyed successful professional relationships with giants of the sports world — Tony Gwynn, Ken Griffey, Jr, Ozzie Smith and Mark McGwire, just to name a few.

But Jim’s story is about more than sports. His is a story of determination, perseverance, and faith. Few have faced the litany of health challenges Jim has seen in his life. From multiple heart transplants to bouts with cancer, Jim has survived a myriad of health issues.

In this book, Jim shares stories of memorable moments with some of the greats in the sporting world. He recounts his numerous operations and rehabilitation efforts. And he honors the life-saving role family, friends, doctors, nurses — and organ donors — have played in his life.

From Jim’s early days of youth soccer to his induction into the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame, Saves chronicles the inspirational story of a man who understands the value of family, friends and faith.
