Synopsis

Derek Jeter by Clifford W. Mills

This is a captivating biography of a true team player - both on and off the field.Derek Jeter, the seven-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner, was the American League Rookie of the Year in 1996 and the World Series MVP in 2000. He has helped bring four World Championships to the New York Yankees, and as Yankees captain has been a dedicated team leader admired by almost every Yankees fan. He is one of the best-hitting shortstops of all time, and one of the game's true clutch players. Jeter is a leader off the field as well: his Turn 2 Foundation is one of the nation's most successful youth programs. Filled with informative career statistics and eye-catching photographs, the all-new Derek Jeter explores the life of a celebrated athlete who is well on his way to becoming a Yankees legend on par with Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, and Joe DiMaggio.
