Derek Jeter: Spectacular Shortstop
Derek Jeter had always wanted to play for the Yankees. When he was a senior in high school, the Yankees drafted him and his dream came true. In the next few years, he went from a homesick minor leaguer, to the American League Rookie of the Year, to the World Series Most Valuable Player. Jeter has also been team captain since 2003 and is the Yankees all-time leader in hits.
