Historical Derek Jeter Milestones
There are few players who are as accomplished or more celebrated than former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter. Jeter took over as starting shortstop for the Bronx Bombers in 1996 and went on to win the American League Rookie of the Year award while helping to lead the New York Yankees to their 23rd World Series Championship. During his two-decade tenure as the starting shortstop for New York, Jeter led the Yankees to five World Series Champions in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2009. Widely considered as one of the game's best defenders, Jeter won three consecutive Rawlings Gold Glove Awards spanning from 2004 through 2006 and two additional titles in 2009 and 2010. Noted for his ability to come up big in the clutch, Jeter still holds multiple postseason records and a .351 World Series batting average that earned him the nickname "Mr. November". Coinciding with offensive greatness, Jeter is responsible for some of the most memorable defensive plays in baseball history. In a tied Game 3 of the 2001 American League Division Series against the Oakland Athletics, Oakland right fielder Terrence Long hit a double down the right field line. When New York outfielder Shane Spencer's relay throw to Tino Martinez sailed over Martinez's head, Jeter came emerged from seemingly nowhere to pick up the ball and flip it to catcher Jorge Posada who then tagged out Jason Giambi, who would have been the go-ahead run. This infamous play became known simply as "The Flip." The Yankees went on to win the game and the series. His greatness struck again during a July 2004 meeting against the archrival Boston Red Sox. With the game Jeter raced up the line and caught the ball before his momentum carried him into the third row of seats at Yankee Stadium. The catch preserved the 3-3 tie and the Yankees went on to win the game in the bottom of the 13th inning. Jeter emerged from the game with a lacerated chin and several bruises on his face, a moment fitting to be a shining microcosm of the Yankee shortstop, only the eleventh Yankee Captain in franchise history.
Derek Jeter is a timeless player whose iconic stature and on the field accomplishments have made him one of the most respected and recognizable athletes in the world. As one of eleven Yankees captains, a 14-time All-Star, and the all-time MLB leader in hits by a shortstop, Jeter has joined the ranks of New York legends, such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Thurman Munson and Don Mattingly.
