Derek Jeter has never had the feeling of being with any other major league team. He has won 4 World Series championships with the Yankees so far. The past few years he has not won the World Series but has made it to the play-offs. He has been the center of attraction for several years now. Recently he has had to share the spotlight by the Yankees gaining such players as Jason Giambi, A-rod, and Gary Sheifield. Still Jeter is considered to be the “captain” of the New York Yankees. Just recently he has showed his determination for the game by making a sacrificing diving catch into the seats while playing against the Mets to win the game. He ran to catch a fly ball that was going foul and continued into the crowd. He ended up with a black eye and a cut on his chin. He even played in the next game the following night. In the following game he received a standing ovation by both the Met and the Yankee fans. The Mets’ cheers quickly turned into “Boos” proving that the rivalry was still present. Jeter was in a major slump early in the season. Leaving August Derek Jeter was batting a .168 avg. As of now he has a .280 batting avg. He has had a major turn around this season. I could imagine him Derek being under a great amount of pressure to lead the team because of his role as the captain of the New York Yankees. He has been friends with A-rod since they were in their teens. Little did he know someday they would be playing together and most likely be winning a World Series championship together. Although they are both short stop players Alex Rodriguez had to change his favorite position to a settling position at third base. He didn’t mind making the move to third base because of how much respect he has for Derek and for his game….
