Happy Birthday Mr. Yankee -Derek Jeter
Derek Jeter is six hits away from the 3,000 hits milestone. Today the Yankee Captain turned 37 year old. Since he has been out of the line up, the Yankees are certainly holding their own. This has by no means lessen his significance, but this is a mature team of professionals who come to play.
Regardless of whether he can hit 60 home runs or score 300 runs each year, Derek Jeter has earned the right and the respect based on his body of work. He has the hardware and the software.
We live in a society where it’s always, “what have you done for me lately,” and that is wrong. We must never forget the championship years led by the one and only, Mr. Derek Jeter. Happy Birthday!
