Yesterday was Derek Jeter Day at Yankee Stadium

I’m sure I watched with many other Yankee fans the pre-game  show where the Yankees  honored Number Two- “The Captain”.   Derek Jeter has been with the organization since 1995  and holds Yankees career records for hits, games played, stolen bases, at-bats and singles!   This is an amazing feat for such an extraordinary franchise! Perhaps, what is more remarkable to me is how he formed his foundation Turn 2,  which turns kids toward a healthier lifestyle and away from drugs when he was only 20 years old in his rookie season!  In a day and age where we uncover scandals about celebrities every day, Derek Jeter is a breath of fresh air and someone I would want to read more about.    Check out these books today!
