Overview

When he was a little boy, Derek Jeter dreamed only one dream — he wanted to play shortstop for the New York Yankees. Today, Derek Jeter lives that dream, and more. He has been the team's star shortstop since 1996 and is a major reason the Yankees have won three World Series in that time. His outstanding play in the field combined with his powerful batting make him a force to be reckoned with, but it's his positive attitude and hard work that have earned him the respect and admiration of his teammates and his fans. In a sport filled with superstars, Derek Jeter has proven he has what it takes to rise to the top.

Also read my post on the super bowl book abt R5. So stoked abt their performance tonight at the super bowl!!!! -R5movieReviewer. Ps watch the super bowl in silence no groaning moaning laughing coughing sneezing burping farting or anything like that.
