One of the WIN METHODS first player selections and arguably possibly the greatest was Derek Jeter. Derek Jeter is the consumate ball player, a true leader, a clutch performer, a consistent performer, a man of character, charisma, reliability, and dependability.
Recently Derek Jeter surpassed Lou Gehrigs all time hit total as a player wearing a YANKEE uniform. Lou had held the title for the past seventy-two years.
There are a couple of other facts regarding Jeter which illustrate his overwhelming greatness and his being the best baseball player in the world over the past fifteen plus years. One, Derek Jeter has won more baseball games than other MLB player. This is an amazing fete considering some of the names of players one could throw around over the past fifteen years. Two, Derek Jeters popup rate to the infield is the lowest in all of MLB by an unbelievably wide margin. Jeter pops out to the infield approximately one time for every one hundred at bats. An astonishing fete that no one else comes close to.
Throw in this fact, Jeter has helped lead his team to the playoffs every year but one of his career. He has won six American League pennants and four World Series. Jeters defense at shortstop is second to no one in baseball and he, over his career, has made plays in crucial situations that no other player could ever dream of.
Congratulation, Derek Jeter, for what you have accomplished and will still accomplish in the future.
