Wiki

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's clubhouse presence, on-field leadership, hitting ability, and baserunning have made him a central figure of the franchise during the Yankees' success of the 1990s and 2000s. Due to his impact on the team, he has served as the Yankees' team captain since 2003. He is regarded as a consummate professional by teammates and opponents alike, and has a reputation as a reliable contributor in the postseason.

Jeter was drafted out of high school by the Yankees organization in 1992, and he debuted in the Major Leagues in 1995. The following year, he became the Yankees' starting shortstop and won the Rookie of the Year Award. In addition, Jeter's achievements include four Silver Slugger Awards, five Gold Glove awards, All-Star Game MVP Award, World Series MVP Award, and membership in the 3,000 hit club.

Many players and coaches consider Jeter to be one of the best players of his generation. He is the all-time hits leader among shortstops, and his .317 career batting average through the 2009 season ranks as the fifth-highest among active players. He has been among the American League (AL) leaders in hits and runs scored for the past ten years. He is the all-time Yankees hit leader, having passed Hall of Fame member Lou Gehrig in 2009. Sportswriters anticipate that Jeter will be inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame following his playing career.
