Sports Hero Of The Week: Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter clinched his spot as modern day Mr. Yankee yesterday when he passed iconic Yank Lou Gehrig’s hit record by notching his 1270th.

Yankee haters will hate that Jeter is receiving this award, but could it be more appropriate that in true clutch fashion, Jeter clinches this spot in Yanks history the week before the last game is played in historic Yankee Stadium?

Through thick and thin, the Yankees fans know their short stop and team captain will deliver. He came up through the Yankee organization and anchors a team rife with drama, dynamic personalities, and a very high payroll.

Add Jeter to legends that took the field in Yankee Stadium like Maris, Mantle, Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Murcer, Berra, Rizuto, Jackson, Martin, Stengel, and Torre.
