We watched him grow up in our living rooms for nearly 20 years. We watched a boy become a man in every aspect of the game. We watched clutch at-bat, after clutch at-bat, witnessing one of the greatest winners of all time. If his regular-season consistency didn’t show us the competitor he was, his playoff numbers alone did.
He was our leader.
The ultimate winner.
And now, a Hall of Fame shortstop.
There are so many moments of Derek Jeter’s career that gave us chills. So it’s only fitting this new tribute video to our Captain will leave you with more chills than if you were to stroll down 161st Street (fittingly, soon-to-be called Jeter Street), on this frigid January day in your undies.
A tribute to Derek Jeter. From Larkin, Ripken, and Ozzie.
