Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter is one of the most famous MLB players in history and was the New York Yankee's shortstop and captain.  Drafted directly from high school to play in the major leagues, the New Jersey native has received many awards for his skills on the field, including the 2000 All-Star Game and World Series MVP.  On July 9, 2011, the professional slugger recorded his 3,000th hit, one of few to do it with a homerun.  In 2002, Jeter was nominated for a BET Male Athlete of the Year award. On September 27, 2014, the Yankees captain officially retired with a final game against the Red Sox,  leaving the field to a standing ovation at Fenway Park.
