About Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter, New York icon and Yankees' captain, took baseball by storm in 1996 winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award. 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 year. In addition to leading his team to four world titles, Derek has amassed numerous awards and accolades in his thirteen years in the league and has become one of the most respected and marketable players in the sport.

Derek's belief in continued improvement -- not only in himself, but others -- is evident in his professional accomplishments.
