9780062368478: Derek Jeter: Born to Be a Yankee

In celebration of one of the most widely beloved Yankees on the eve of his retirement, a handsomely designed, lavishly illustrated full-color commemorative keepsake volume that showcases his outstanding nineteen-year career.

In the fourth grade, Derek Jeter told his teacher that he was going to play shortstop for the New York Yankees—a dream would come true less than a decade later. Drafted out of Kalamazoo Central High School in 1992 when he was just eighteen, Jeter became the Yankees’ starting shortstop and the American League’s Rookie of the Year in just four years. One of the few professional athletes to have played his entire career with a single team, he helped the Yankees win five World Series championships, four of them in his first five years.

In his nearly two decades in pinstripes, Jeter became the team’s all-time career leader in hits, games played, stolen bases, and at bats and the all-time leader in hits by a shortstop in major league baseball. A recipient of dozens of awards and accolades, admired by fans, teammates, and opponents alike, Derek Jeter is and will always be the quintessential New York Yankee.

Drawn from the breadth of the archives and photo library of the New York Post, Derek Jeter: Born to be a Yankee charts the future Hall of Famer’s rise and commemorates every significant highlight and milestone in his career. Packed with dozens of color photographs, it pays homage to the man who has personified the modern New York Yankees, and will be a collector’s item for both Yankee fans and baseball aficionados of all ages and generations.
