Derek Jeter picture

Derek Sanderson Jeter ( /ˈdʒiːtər/; born June 26, 1974) is an American baseball shortstop who has played 17 years in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees. A twelve-time All-Star and 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 clubhouse presence, on-field leadership, hitting ability, and baserunning.[1] He is the Yankees' all-time career leader in hits (3,088), games played (2,426), stolen bases (329), and at bats (9,868). His accolades include four Silver Slugger Awards and five Gold Glove awards.

 

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 perform well 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 been among the AL leaders in hits and runs scored for the past ten years, and since 2003, he has served as the Yankees' team captain.[2] In 2009, Jeter broke the major league record for most hits by a shortstop,[1][3] and two years later, he became the 28th player to reach the 3,000 hit club.

 

Throughout his career, Jeter has contributed reliably to the Yankees' 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] Teammates and opponents alike regard Jeter as a consummate professional and one of the best players of his generation.[6][7] Sportswriters anticipate that Jeter will be inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame following his playing career.[8][9]

 

Jeter has been one of the most heavily marketed athletes of his generation and is involved in several product endorsements. His personal life and relationships with celebrities have drawn the attention of the media throughout his career.

Early life

 

Jeter was born in Pequannock, New Jersey in 1974. His father, Sanderson Charles Jeter, Ph.D., a substance abuse counselor, is African American; his mother, Dorothy, an accountant, is Caucasian and of Irish/German descent.[10] They met while serving in the United States Army in Germany.[11] As a child, Jeter's parents made him sign a contract every year that set acceptable and unacceptable forms of behavior.[12] Dorothy instilled a positive attitude in her son, insisting that he not use the word "can't".[13] Jeter's sister Sharlee, who is five years younger, was a softball star in high school,[11] while his father played baseball at Fisk University in Tennessee at the shortstop position.[14]

 

The Jeters lived in North Arlington, New Jersey until Derek was four years old, at which point they moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan.[1] Derek and Sharlee lived in Kalamazoo with their parents during the school year and spent their summers with their grandparents in New Jersey. Jeter became a passionate New York Yankees fan by attending Yankees games with his grandparents.[1][14] Watching Yankees player Dave Winfield inspired him to pursue baseball.[15]

 

High school

 

Jeter attended Kalamazoo Central High School, where he played baseball and basketball. He was an All-State honorable mention at baseball, distinguishing him as one of the best high school baseball players in Michigan. In his sophomore year at Kalamazoo Central, Jeter batted .557, followed by a .508 average in his junior year.[1] In his senior year, he batted .508 and compiled 23 runs batted in (RBIs), 21 walks, four home runs, a .831 slugging percentage, a .637 on-base percentage, 12 stolen bases (in 12 attempts), and just one strikeout.[1] Jeter received several honors after the season, including the Kalamazoo Area B'nai B'rith Award for Scholar Athlete, the 1992 High School Player of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association, the 1992 Gatorade High School Player of the Year award, and USA Today's High School Player of the Year.[1][3] Kalamazoo Central High School inducted Jeter into its Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003[16] and renamed its baseball field in his honor in 2011.[17] Jeter's baseball talents drew the attention of University of Michigan, which offered him a baseball scholarship to attend.[18]

 

Professional career

 

Draft

 

As a scout for the Houston Astros, Hal Newhouser evaluated Jeter extensively prior to the 1992 MLB Draft. The Astros held the first overall pick in the draft, and Newhouser, convinced that Jeter would anchor a winning team, lobbied team management to draft him.[18] However, the Astros feared that Jeter would insist on a salary bonus of at least $1 million to forgo his college scholarship for a professional contract.[18] Consequently, the Astros passed on him in the draft, instead choosing Cal-State Fullerton outfielder Phil Nevin, who signed with Houston for $700,000.[18] Newhouser felt so strongly about Jeter's potential that he quit his job with Astros after they ignored his drafting advice.[19] Yankees scout Dick Groch also rated Jeter highly.[20] Though Yankees officials were concerned that Jeter would attend college, they drafted him at the insistence of Groch, who said "the only place Derek Jeter's going is to Cooperstown", referring to the home city of the Baseball Hall of Fame.[21] Jeter chose to turn professional, signing with the Yankees for $800,000.[22]

 

Minor leagues (1992–1995)

 

Jeter spent four years in the minor leagues, then known as the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues (NAPBL). Jeter began the 1992 season in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League before advancing to the Class-A Greensboro Hornets. At just 156 pounds (71 kg), he did not have the appearance of the Yankees' future leader.[22] Jeter struggled in 1992, batting .202.[18] Manager Gary Denbo benched Jeter in the season's final game to ensure his average would not drop below the infamous .200 mark, known in baseball as the Mendoza Line.[23] In addition to being frustrated with his play, Jeter was homesick, accruing $400-per-month phone bills from daily calls to his parents.[22]

 

Jeter spent the next offseason focusing on improving his fielding.[18][23] In 1993, his first full year of professional baseball, he was voted the "Most Outstanding Major League Prospect" by South Atlantic League managers after hitting .295 with five home runs, 71 RBIs and 18 stolen bases at Class A Greensboro. He was named to the All-Star team after finishing second in the league in triples (11), third in hits (152) and 11th in batting average. Jeter committed 56 errors, a South Atlantic League (SAL) record.[23] Despite this, he was voted the SAL's Best Defensive Shortstop, Most Exciting Player, and Best Infield Arm by Baseball America.[3][24] In the 1994 season, Jeter played for the Class A-Advanced Tampa Yankees, the Double-A Albany-Colonie Yankees, and the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, hitting .344 with five home runs, 68 RBIs, and 50 stolen bases combined. He was honored with the Minor League Player of the Year Award by Baseball America, The Sporting News, USA Today, and Topps/NAPBL.[3][18] He was also named the MVP of the Florida State League.[3]

 

The Yankees projected Jeter to be their starting shortstop for the 1995 season, but when he suffered a minor injury in the Arizona Fall League, the Yankees signed Tony Fernández to a two-year contract to play shortstop and kept Jeter in Triple-A.[25] The Yankees reportedly offered Jeter the opportunity to work out with the replacement players in Spring Training prior to the 1995 season, but he declined to cross the picket line during MLB's work stoppage.[25]

 

Major leagues (1995–present)

 

1995–1998

 

Jeter made his debut in the major leagues on May 29, 1995, in Seattle due to injuries to Fernández and Pat Kelly.[26] Jeter started alongside All-Star infielders Don Mattingly and Wade Boggs. The following day, he collected his first two major league hits and scored his first career run. Jeter batted .234 and committed two errors in 13 games before being demoted to Triple-A Columbus.[27]

 

After Fernández batted a disappointing .245 and appeared in only 108 games due to injury that season, new Yankees manager Joe Torre asserted that Jeter would be the starting shortstop in 1996.[28][29] However, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner was not convinced Jeter was ready. To solidify the shortstop position after an injury to Fernández, Steinbrenner approved a trade that would have sent pitcher Mariano Rivera to the Seattle Mariners for shortstop Félix Fermín, but general managers Gene Michael and Brian Cashman convinced Steinbrenner to give Jeter an opportunity.[30]

 

Jeter started at shortstop on Opening Day of the 1996 season, the first Yankee rookie to do so since Tom Tresh in 1962,[1] and he hit his first major-league home run that day. Jeter had a successful rookie season, as he hit for a .314 batting average, with 10 home runs, 104 runs scored, and 78 RBIs. He subsequently earned Rookie of the Year honors.[31]

 

During Game 1 of the 1996 American League Championship Series, with the Yankees trailing the Baltimore Orioles 4–3 in the 8th inning, Jeter hit a fly ball to right field that was a ruled a home run by the umpires. Twelve-year-old fan Jeffrey Maier reached over the wall to catch the ball, preventing right fielder Tony Tarasco from making the catch. Despite Tarasco's pleas with the umpires for fan interference, the home run stood as called, tying the game. The ruling made for the first home run of Jeter's postseason career. The Yankees won the game and defeated the Orioles in five games.[32] Overall, Jeter batted .361 in the playoffs,[31] and the Yankees defeated the Atlanta Braves in the 1996 World Series to win their first World Series championship since 1978.[33]

 

Coming off of his Rookie of the Year campaign, Jeter headlined a group considered the "new crop" of shortstops, along with Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra, as the careers of older shortstops such as Cal Ripken, Jr., Barry Larkin, Ozzie Smith and Alan Trammell were concluding.[34] Prior to the 1997 season, Jeter and the Yankees agreed on a $540,000 contract with performance bonuses.[35] That year, Jeter batted .291, with 10 home runs, 70 RBIs, 116 runs, and 190 hits.[31] Though he hit two home runs during the 1997 American League Division Series, the Yankees lost to the Cleveland Indians.[36]

 

Jeter earned his first All-Star selection in the 1998 season, batting .324 with a league-leading 127 runs, 19 home runs, and 84 RBIs, and [31] for a team that won 114 games during the regular season and is widely considered to be one of the greatest of all time.[37] In the playoffs, Jeter hit only .176 in the Division and League Championship Series, but he excelled in the World Series, batting .353, as the Yankees defeated the San Diego Padres in four games.[38] At season's end, Jeter finished third in voting for the AL Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award; two voters placed him first on their ballots.[39]

 

1999–2002

 

In 1999, Jeter led the AL in hits with 219, while finishing second in the league in batting average (.349) and runs scored (134), appearing in his second All-Star game in the process.[31] Jeter, who for part of the year hit third in the batting order, also drove in 102 runs, becoming only the second Yankee shortstop to do so, following Lyn Lary's 107 RBIs in 1931.[31] His season totals in batting average, runs, hits, runs batted in, doubles (37), triples (9), home runs (24), slugging percentage (.552), and on-base percentage (.438) are all personal bests.[31] In the postseason, Jeter batted .455 in the AL Division Series, .350 in the AL Championship Series, and .353 in the World Series,[31] as the Yankees defeated the Braves to win another championship, Jeter's third.[40]

 

During the 1999–2000 offseason, the Yankees negotiated with Jeter, tentatively agreeing to a seven-year, $118.5 million contract.[41] Steinbrenner did not want to set a salary record and delayed a response until Juan González and the Detroit Tigers were to agree to an eight-year, $143 million contract extension. When that agreement fell through, so did Jeter's tentative deal. To avoid arbitration, he agreed to a one-year deal worth $10 million.[41][42]

 

Jeter batted .339, with 15 home runs, 73 RBIs, 119 runs scored, and 22 stolen bases in the 2000 regular season.[31] In the 2000 MLB All-Star Game, Jeter recorded three hits, including a go-ahead two-run single. The performance earned him the All-Star Game MVP Award, the first time a Yankee won the award.[43] During the postseason, he batted only .211 in the Division Series but rebounded in the next two series; he hit .318 in the Championship Series against the Seattle Mariners, and .409 in the World Series against the New York Mets.[31] Jeter added two home runs, a triple, and two doubles in the World Series, including a leadoff home run on the first pitch of Game 4 and a triple later in the third inning.[44] His home run in Game 5 tied the game and extended his World Series hitting streak to 14 games.[45] The Yankees won in five games for their third consecutive title, and Jeter's fourth championship overall.[46] Jeter won the World Series MVP Award, becoming the only player to win the All-Star Game MVP and World Series MVP Awards in the same season.[47]

 

With one year remaining until he would become eligible for free agency, Jeter signed a ten-year, $189 million contract before the 2001 season to remain with the Yankees, making him the second-highest-paid athlete, trailing only Rodriguez.[41] Rodriguez signed his deal earlier in the offseason, setting a higher market for Jeter's negotiations.[41]

 

In 2001, Jeter batted .311, with 21 home runs, 74 RBIs, 110 runs scored, and 27 stolen bases, making his fourth All-Star appearance.[31] Jeter made a notable defensive play in Game 3 of the 2001 American League Division Series against the Oakland Athletics. With Jeremy Giambi on first base, Oakland right fielder Terrence Long hit a double off Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina into the right-field corner. As Giambi rounded third base and headed for home plate, Yankees right fielder Shane Spencer retrieved the ball and made a wild throw that missed cut-off man Tino Martinez and dribbled down the first-base line. Jeter ran from shortstop to grab the ball and flipped it to catcher Jorge Posada, who tagged Giambi out on the leg just before he crossed home plate, preserving the Yankees' one-run lead. Facing elimination, the Yankees eventually won the game, as well as the series. The play, known as "The Flip,"[1] was later voted seventh in Baseball Weekly's 10 Most Amazing Plays of all time,[48] and also won the 2002 Best Play ESPY Award.[49]

 

As a result of the September 11 terrorist attacks, the start of the playoffs was delayed and the season's end was extended past the usual October timeframe. The Yankees advanced to the 2001 World Series to face the Arizona Diamondbacks. Game 4, which began on October 31, proceeded into the tenth inning with the score tied 3–3. At midnight, the Yankee Stadium scoreboard displayed the message, "Attention Fans, Welcome to NOVEMBER BASEBALL." This was the first time that any non-exhibition MLB game had been played in the month of November.[1] Moments later, Jeter hit a game-winning home run off of Byung-Hyun Kim. The words "Mr. November" were flashed on the scoreboard, in reference to former Yankee Reggie Jackson's nickname, "Mr. October".[1] Despite Jeter's highlight moments that postseason, Jeter slumped at plate; he denied injuries were a factor, though a fall into a photographer's box trying to catch a foul ball may have aggravated an earlier hamstring injury.[50] Jeter batted .148 in the World Series, as the Yankees lost in seven games.[51]

 

In 2002, Jeter batted .297, with 18 home runs, 75 RBIs, 124 runs scored, 191 hits, and a career-best 32 stolen bases. He led the majors in stolen base percentage (91.4%), getting caught only three times. He made his fifth All-Star appearance.[31]

 

2003–2008

 

Jeter dislocated his left shoulder on Opening Day of the 2003 season when he collided with Blue Jays catcher Ken Huckaby at third base.[52] Jeter, who had never played fewer than 148 games in the prior seven full seasons, was subsequently on the disabled list for six weeks, missing 36 games.[53] Jeter returned to bat .324, finishing third in batting average to Bill Mueller, who batted .326.[54]

 

Steinbrenner named Jeter the 11th recognized captain in Yankees history on June 3, 2003, following eight seasons without one after Don Mattingly retired in 1995.[2] The true count of captains in Yankees history has been disputed.[55]

 

The 2004 season began with Jeter mired in a slump; on May 25, he was hitting only .189. This included a personal career record 0-for-32 skid in April.[31] In June, Jeter broke out of his slump; he hit nearly .400 for the month and collected 9 home runs, a personal best for any single month. He made the All-Star team and finished the season with a .292 average; 23 home runs, the second-most of his career; 78 RBIs; 111 runs scored; and a career-best 44 doubles, which broke a Yankee single-season record for doubles by a shortstop, besting Tony Kubek's 38 in 1961.[31]

 

During a July 1, 2004, game against the rival Boston Red Sox, with the score tied at 3 in the top of the 12th inning, the Red Sox had runners on second and third with 2 outs and right fielder Trot Nixon up at bat. Nixon hit a pop fly down the left field line. Jeter ran from his position at shortstop and made an over-the-shoulder catch. In dramatic fashion, he launched himself over the third-base side railing, landing three rows into the left-field seats, and lacerating his chin and bruising his face in the process. Jeter was later taken out of the game. This catch ended the inning, and later the Yankees went on to win the game in the bottom of the 13th inning.[56] For the play, Jeter was awarded Play Of The Year in the This Year In Baseball awards competition, as voted on by fans at MLB.com.[57]

 

On June 18, 2005, against the Chicago Cubs, Jeter hit his first and only grand slam, after 10 years in the major leagues. At one point, Jeter had the most at bats of any active player not to have hit a grand slam.[58] Jeter was second in the AL in both runs scored (122) and batting average on balls in play (.394) in the 2005 season,[59] and was third in the league in both at bats (654) and hits (202). Jeter won his second consecutive Gold Glove in 2005,[60] as his range factor rose to 4.76 and ranked second among AL shortstops.[61]

 

In 2006, Jeter recorded his 2,000th career hit with an infield single on May 26, 2006, off Kansas City Royals pitcher Scott Elarton, becoming the eighth Yankee to reach the milestone. In 2006, Jeter finished second in the AL in both batting average (.343) and runs scored (118), third in hits (214), stolen base success percentage (87.2), and batting average with runners in scoring position (.381), and fifth in infield hits (26), earning his seventh All-Star selection.[31][62] He finished second in AL MVP Award voting to Justin Morneau of the Minnesota Twins (320 points to 306 points).[63] Jeter finished in the top 10 in the MVP balloting 6 times in his 11 full seasons through 2006.[31]

 

Jeter had his sixth overall and third consecutive season of 200 hits or more in 2007, finishing third in the AL with 203. He was also fourth in both at-bats (639) and plate appearances (714), sixth in times on base (276), and ninth in batting average (.322). He was selected for eighth All-Star appearance.[31] In the field, he was involved in a career-high 104 double plays.[31]

 

Jeter's slugging percentage (SLG) dropped to .410 in 2008, his lowest mark since 1997.[31] One possible cause was a prolonged slump that he suffered after being hit by a pitch on his wrist.[64] Before the injury, Jeter was hitting .324 with a .774 on-base plus slugging (OPS). After the injury, his batting average dipped to as low as .269 by the end of the month.[31] His offense took an upward turn after May as he hit .322 with a .824 OPS after June 1.[31] Jeter was elected to his ninth All-Star game as the starting shortstop.[65]

 

Jeter tied Lou Gehrig for the most hits at Yankee Stadium (1,269) with a home run off Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price on September 14, 2008.[66] On September 16, he went on to break the record off of Chicago White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd.[67] Following the final game in Yankee Stadium history, Jeter made an impromptu on-field speech, thanking the Yankees fans for their support and asking them to pass on their memories from the venue while making new memories at the new Yankee Stadium.[68]

 

2009–present

 

Jeter was named eighth on the Sporting News' list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball during the 2009 season by a panel of 100 baseball people, composed of members of the Baseball Hall of Fame and winners of major baseball awards.[69]

 

For the 2009 season, Yankees manager Joe Girardi switched Jeter and Johnny Damon in the batting order, with Damon moving to second and Jeter to the leadoff role, based on the rationale that Jeter had a higher on base percentage (OBP) than Damon, but grounded into double plays more often.[70] Jeter batted .334 (third in the AL), with a .406 on-base percentage, 18 home runs, 30 stolen bases (caught only 5 times), 107 runs scored (in the top 10 in MLB), and 212 hits (second in MLB).[31]

 

On August 16, 2009, against the Seattle Mariners, Jeter doubled down the right-field line for his 2,675th hit as a shortstop, breaking Luis Aparicio's previous record for the most hits by a shortstop in major league history.[71] Jeter became the all-time hits leader as a member of the Yankees (2,722), passing Lou Gehrig on September 11, 2009. The hit was a single off Baltimore Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman in the third inning.[72]

 

In the 2009 postseason, Jeter batted .355, including .407 in the 2009 World Series,[31] as he won his fifth World Series championship. He was named Sportsman of the Year for 2009 by Sports Illustrated.[73] Jeter also finished third in the AL MVP voting, behind Minnesota's Joe Mauer and teammate Mark Teixeira.[74]

 

The 2010 season was statistically Jeter's worst in many respects.[75] The Yankee captain batted .270 with a .340 OBP and .370 SLG and an Adjusted OPS of 90, his first full season with an OPS+ below 100. Despite this, Jeter was elected to start at shortstop in the All-Star Game.[76] Despite Jeter's offensive struggles, he batted .342 in his last 79 at-bats after making adjustments to his swing.[77] Following the season, Jeter won his fifth Gold Glove award.[78] He committed six errors during the season, his lowest total in 15 full seasons.[79]

 

After the 2010 season, Jeter became a free agent for the first time in his career. He reached an agreement with the Yankees on a three-year contract with an option for a fourth year.[80] The deal was finalized on December 7.[81] Jeter spent the offseason making adjustments in his swing.[82]

 

Jeter broke Rickey Henderson's franchise record for stolen bases when he stole his 327th base against the Mariners on May 28, 2011.[83] Jeter began the 2011 season batting .260 with a .649 OPS prior to suffering a calf injury that required his fifth career 15-day disabled list stint, and his first since 2003.[84][85] Following his activation from the DL, he hit .326 with an .806 OPS in his last 64 games of the season.[84] Jeter finished the year with a .297 batting average, 6 home runs, 61 runs batted in, 84 runs, and 16 stolen bases.[31]

 

Jeter recorded his 3,000th career hit, a home run in the third inning of an afternoon game against David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays on July 9, 2011. Jeter finished the day with five hits in five at bats, the second player to do so the day of achieving the 3,000th hit (the first was Craig Biggio).[86] The last of Jeter's five hits proved to be the game-winning hit. He is the only member of the 3,000 hit club to record all of his hits with the New York Yankees, and one of only two players (the other being Wade Boggs) to hit a home run for his 3,000th hit.[87] Jeter is the second player to reach 3,000 hits as a shortstop (the first was Honus Wagner).[88] Only Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron and Robin Yount were younger than Jeter on the day of their 3,000th hit.[88] Major League Baseball and HBO produced Deter Jeter 3K, a documentary that profiles his path to 3,000 hits which originally aired on July 28, 2011.[89]

 

Jeter finished the 2011 season with 162 hits, his 16th consecutive season with 150 hits, which tied him with Pete Rose for the second most consecutive 150 hit seasons, one behind Hank Aaron for the MLB record.[90] Jeter was honored with the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, given in recognition of charitable endeavors.[91]

 

World Baseball Classic

 

Jeter was the starting shortstop for Team USA in the 2006 World Baseball Classic. He hit .450 (9-for-20) and scored five runs in six games. Only Ken Griffey, Jr. (.524) and Yoandy Garlobo (.480) had a higher batting average with a minimum of 20 at bats.[92] Jeter's play earned him recognition as the shortstop selection on the All-Tournament Team.[93]

 

Jeter started at shortstop for Team USA in the 2009 World Baseball Classic as well. At the start of the tournament, he was named captain of Team USA by manager Davey Johnson.[94] With Team USA, Jeter faced the Yankees at Steinbrenner Field in an exhibition game, the first time he played against the Yankees.[95]

 

Player profile

 

Jeter is considered to be one of the most consistent baseball players of all time. Jeter has only played fewer than 148 games a season once in his career, when he dislocated his left shoulder on Opening Day, 2003. He has an average of 194 hits, 118 runs scored and 23 stolen bases per year over the course of 152 games played.[97]

 

Though Jeter is a right-handed hitter, his signature inside-out swing, also called the "Jeterian Swing",[98] has driven a large portion of hits up the middle, to center and right field, a trend that has remained consistent throughout his career. He has more home runs to the opposite field (86) than to center or to left, using his swing to take advantage of the short right-field fences at both the old and new Yankee Stadiums.[99] He is an aggressive hitter, swinging at most pitches in the strike zone, and many near it.[18] His swing enables him to get hits even when he is slumping.[18]

 

Jeter is also known for his professionalism. In an age where professional athletes often find themselves in personal scandals, Jeter has avoided major controversy in a high profile career in New York City while maintaining a strong work ethic.[6][9][12][100] A clubhouse leader, Jeter diffuses confrontations between teammates.[6] Due to his style of play, opponents and teammates hold Jeter in high esteem.[6][96]

 

Postseason performance

 

Jeter is noted for his postseason performances, and has earned the titles of "Captain Clutch", and "Mr. November" due to his postseason heroics.[4][5][101][102] He has a career .309 postseason batting average, and a .351 batting average in the World Series. Except for 2008, the Yankees have been to the postseason every year since Jeter joined the team. Jeter owns MLB postseason records for games played (152), plate appearances (679), at-bats (559), hits (191), doubles (31), runs scored (107), total bases (290) and strikeouts (125). Jeter is also third in triples (4), third in home runs (20), fourth in runs batted in (59), and fifth in base on balls (64) and sixth stolen bases (18).[31]

 

Defense

 

Despite winning five Gold Glove Awards, Jeter's defense has been the subject of criticism from a number of sabermetricians, including Rob Neyer and the publication Baseball Prospectus.[103][104][105] The book The Fielding Bible by John Dewan contains an essay by Bill James in which he concludes that Jeter "was probably the most ineffective defensive player in the major leagues, at any position."[106] A 2008 study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania found that, from 2002 through 2005, Jeter was the worst defensive shortstop in the Major Leagues.[107] Jeter responded to this criticism by saying "I play in New York, man. Criticism is part of the game, you take criticism as a challenge."[108] The controversy over Jeter's fielding has become a flash point for the debate over whether the analyses of statistics or subjective observation is the better method to assess a player's defensive ability, and for criticism of the Gold Glove award.[109]

 

Jeter committed 18 errors in 2007, his highest total since finishing with 24 in 2000.[108] After the season, Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman and his staff saw Jeter's defense as an area that needed to be addressed.[110] At the Yankees' request, Jeter embarked on a rigorous training program to combat the effects of age, by focusing on lateral movement and first-step quickness.[111] Jeter's ultimate zone rating (UZR) improved from worst in the AL for shortstops in 2007 to close to league average in 2008.[110]

 

Two sites that rely on advanced defensive statistics, FanGraphs.com and FieldingBible.com, rated Jeter below middle-of-the-pack status in 2010, despite his receiving his fifth Gold Glove Award that season.[112][113] When asked about his defense, Jeter asserted that many defensive factors cannot be quantified.[79]

Milestones

 

Jeter recorded his 2,000th career hit with an infield single on May 26, 2006, off Kansas City Royals pitcher Scott Elarton, becoming the eighth Yankee to reach the milestone.[122]

On June 27, 2008, Jeter hit his 400th double.[123]

On July 12, 2008, Jeter hit his 200th home run.[124]

On September 14, 2008, Jeter tied Lou Gehrig for most hits at Yankee Stadium.[66] He passed Gehrig on September 16, 2008.[67]

On August 2, 2009, Jeter played in his 2,084th game, tying Babe Ruth for 4th in Yankees history.[125]

On August 16, 2009, Jeter recorded his 2,673rd and 2,674th hits, tying and passing Luis Aparicio for most hits by a shortstop in Major League history.[71]

On September 11, 2009, Jeter became the Yankees' all-time hits leader, surpassing Lou Gehrig with his 2,722nd hit, a single to right field off of Baltimore Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman in the third inning.[72]

On April 6, 2010, Jeter, along with Posada and Mariano Rivera, became the first teammates in any of the four major league sports in North America (MLB, NFL, NBA, or NHL) to play in at least 16 seasons on the same team as teammates.[126]

On June 12, 2010, Jeter compiled his 3,000th hit (including the postseason) with a solo home run in the first inning against the Houston Astros. The hit also tied him with Rickey Henderson as the all-time Yankees leader in leadoff home runs.[127]

On May 28, 2011, Jeter stole his 327th base, breaking Henderson's franchise record for stolen bases.[83]

On July 9, 2011, Jeter became the 28th member of the 3,000 hit club when he homered off David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays in the third inning at Yankee Stadium. He is also the first player in Yankees history to achieve the feat.[128]

On July 14, 2011, Jeter and Posada played their 1,660th game together, breaking the previous franchise record of 1,659 by Gehrig and Tony Lazzeri.[129]

On August 29, 2011, Jeter played his 2,402nd game with the Yankees, breaking Mickey Mantle's record for most games played as a Yankee.[130]

 

Personal life

 

Jeter maintains an apartment in Manhattan's Trump World Tower and homes in Marlboro, New Jersey, Greenwood Lake, New York,[131] and the Davis Islands neighborhood of Tampa, Florida.[132]

 

Jeter's personal life has been a frequent topic in gossip columns and celebrity magazines since his rookie year in 1996. He had a well-publicized relationship with pop diva Mariah Carey from 1997 to 1998.[1][133] Jeter has also dated former Miss Universe Lara Dutta,[1][134] singer Joy Enriquez,[135] actress Jordana Brewster,[1][136] television personality Vanessa Minillo,[133] actress Jessica Biel,[137][138] and actress Minka Kelly.[139][140][141]

 

In December 2002, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner criticized Jeter for staying out until 3 a.m. at a birthday party during the 2002 season, saying that his star shortstop "wasn't totally focused" and that "it didn't sit well" with him.[18] The two mocked the incident in a May 2003 VISA commercial, where they went club-hopping, in a fashion similar to how Steinbrenner and former Yankees manager Billy Martin made light of their feud in a Miller Lite commercial during the 1970s.[142]

 

Jeter settled a tax dispute with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance in 2008.[143] New York State alleged that Jeter should have paid state income tax from 2001 to 2003, as Jeter bought a Manhattan apartment in 2001; Jeter established his residence in Tampa, Florida, in 1994 and claimed that he was still a resident of Florida at the time, where there is no state income tax.[144][145]

 

Jeter is a close personal friend of Yankees catcher Jorge Posada and served as best man at Posada's wedding.[146] He has also renewed his close friendship with teammate Alex Rodriguez after a rift between them developed several years ago.[147]

 

Appearances outside of baseball

 

Philanthropy

 

Jeter began the Turn 2 Foundation, a charity organization, in 1996. The Foundation was established to help children and teenagers avoid drug and alcohol addiction, and to reward those who show high academic achievement. The organization's name derives from the baseball double play (where "turning two" refers to making two outs on one play) and indicates the goal of the Foundation to give youths a place to "turn to" instead of drugs and alcohol.[148]

 

During the 2009 season, Jeter and Mets star David Wright represented their foundations in a competition sponsored by Delta Air Lines; the player with the highest batting average received $100,000 for their foundation from Delta, while the runner-up's foundation received $50,000.[149] Wright's group, the David Wright Foundation, focuses on multiple sclerosis.[150]

 

Jeter is also involved in Weplay, a website designed to encourage children to get involved in sports.[151]

 

Endorsements

 

Jeter has appeared in national ad campaigns for Nike, Gatorade, Fleet Bank, Discover Card, Florsheim, Gillette Fusion, VISA (with Yankees owner George Steinbrenner), Skippy, Ford, and XM Satellite Radio.[152][153][154] He endorses a cologne named Driven, designed in collaboration with and distributed by Avon.[155] Jeter has his own Jumpman shoe.[156]

 

In 2006, Jeter was the second-highest paid endorser in baseball, having earned $7 million in endorsements.[157] He was ranked as the most marketable player in baseball according to the 2005[158] and 2010 Sports Business Surveys.[159] A 2011 list by the marketing firm Nielsen ranked Jeter as the most marketable player in baseball, accounting for personal attributes such as sincerity, approachability, experience, and influence.[160]

 

Other appearances

 

Jeter was the cover athlete for 2K Sports' MLB 2K5, MLB 2K6, and MLB 2K7. He was also the cover athlete for Acclaim Entertainment's All-Star Baseball series of video games. Jeter is the cover athlete for Gameloft's wireless phone baseball game, Derek Jeter Pro Baseball 2008. He has appeared on television in Seinfeld and as a host on Saturday Night Live.[161] Jeter had cameo appearances in the comedy films Anger Management and The Other Guys.[162] Jeter's likeness was seen briefly on The Simpsons during the eighth episode of season 19, titled "Funeral for a Fiend", in which he was parodied as a guest starring on Sesame Street. Jeter was the subject of a 2005 segment on the TV news magazine 60 Minutes.[12]

 

There is a wax figure of Jeter at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in New York,[163] and a sculpture at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory in Louisville, Kentucky.[164]
