Derek Jeter will go down as one of the greatest players to ever put on a Yankees uniform.
He became the all-time New York Yankees Hits leader recording his 2722nd hit as a member of the Bronx bombers on 09/11/2009, and in doing so passed Lou Gehrig who held the record for exactly 70 years. Additionally during the 2009 campaign, he passed Mickey Mantle for most career at-bats with the team-Mantle had held the coveted Yankees record since 1968.
Jeter holds the all time hits record for the Original Yankee Stadium, at 1271. Jeter won the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 1996, and has won three Silver Slugger Awards, three Gold Glove Awards and is a ten-time All Star. To date, has led the Yankees to four World Series Championships and in 2000, he became the only player to win both the All-Star Game MVP Award and the World Series MVP Award in the same season. Jeter is renowned for his clutch hitting and ability to perform under pressure as evidenced by his .307 lifetime average in the postseason, to accompany his 85 R, 17 HR and 49 RBI.
