Derek Jeter


Derek jeter was a shortstop and captain for the new York Yankees. As he begins his 20th final season In pinstripes, Jeter remains the type of role-model player that even a red sox fan must grudgingly respect. It's no the five world series rings he's won or his team record for career hits. In a steroid-tainted, reality-TV era, jeter, the son of two army veterans, continues to stand out because of his old-school approach: Never offer excuses or give less then maximum effort.
