Happy birthday Derek Jeter!

BRONX, N.Y. — On this date in 1974, Derek Jeter was born. The New York Yankees shortstop spent the better part of 20 seasons in pinstripes.

Selected in the first round of the 1992 draft, Jeter played in pinstripes from 1995 to 2014.

Mattingly, whose No. 2 was retired in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium in 2017, remains a fan favorite of the Bronx faithful to this day.

In 1996, Jeter made his mark by earning the American League Rookie of the Year Award. Jeter followed that up with a World Series title and four more after that by the time it was all said and done.

A 14-time All-Star, five-time silver slugger, and five-time gold glove winner, Jeter served as the 15th captain in franchise history from 2003-2014. The Yankee Captain was also a World Series MVP and All-Star Game MVP in 2000.

His 3,465 hits rank sixth all-time in MLB history. Jeter was an equally prolific performer in the postseason, collecting a record 200 base knocks.

The present Miami Marlins CEO was one vote shy from a unanimous induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown in 2020.
