BIOGRAPHY:

Derek Sanderson Jeter (
Recap Image
/ˈtər/; born June 26, 1974) is an American baseball shortstop who has played 18 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees. A five-time World Series champion, Jeter has been a central figure of the Yankees during their success of the 1990s and 2000s due to his hitting ability, baserunning, and leadership on the field and in the clubhouse.[1] He is the Yankees' all-time career leader in hits (3,166), games played (2,484), stolen bases (344), and at bats (10,114). His accolades include twelve All-Star selections, five Gold Glove Awards, four Silver Slugger Awards, two Hank Aaron Awards, and a Roberto Clemente Award. Jeter is the all-time MLB leader in hits by a shortstop,[1][2] and the 28th player to reach 3,000 hits.
The Yankees drafted Jeter out of high school in 1992, and he debuted in the major leagues in 1995. The following year, he became the Yankees' starting shortstop, won the Rookie of the Year Award, and helped the team win the 1996 World Series. Jeter continued to contribute during the team's championship seasons of 1998–2000; he finished third in voting for the American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in 1998, recorded multiple career-high numbers in 1999, and won both the All-Star Game MVP and World Series MVP Awards in 2000. He has consistently placed among the AL leaders in hits and runs scored for the past ten years, and since 2003 has served as the Yankees' team captain.[3] Throughout his career, Jeter has contributed reliably to the Yankees' franchise successes in the postseason. He holds many postseason records, and has a .351 batting average in the World Series. Jeter has earned the titles of "Captain Clutch" and "Mr. November" due to his postseason heroics.[4][5]




TRIVIA:
  • Finished in top 10 in voting for American League MVP from 1998-2001.

Game 4 of this World Series marked the first time in Major League history where the season continued into November. Jeter clinched the nickname by hitting a solo home run in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Yankees a 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
  • Named 1992 High School Player-of-the-Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association.
  • Grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and graduated from Kalamazoo Central High School in 1992.
  • Good friends with Tiger Woods.
  • In 2007, Forbes Magazine estimated his earnings to be $28 million for the year.
  • In game 4 of the 2000 World Series, he hit a home-run off of New York Mets' Bobby Jones' first pitch of the game.
  • Was voted "most likely to be the starting shortstop for the New York Yankees" in high school.
