Jeter had already hit three times, in fact had led off each inning in the privilege afforded major leaguers who are doing a rehab assignment in the minor leagues
The kid had just blown an easy play in center field and he came back to the dugout with his head down. And the first hand that landed on his shoulder, the consoling hand, belonged to Derek Jeter…
Jeter had already hit three times, in fact had led off each inning in the privilege afforded major leaguers who are doing a rehab assignment in the minor leagues, and now it was his turn to hit again.
“Why don’t you go up there and hit first this inning?,” Jeter asked the kid.
Meanwhile, the kid took Jeter up on the offer, and on the first pitch he saw, cracked a home run over the left-field fence.
Everyone on earth benefits from breathing the same air that he does.
One does wonder... if the Yankees do fall on hard times might they look at making Jeter player/manager? After all, why not? It would be popular with fans and might help encourage him to move away from the field more and more.
Would player/manager Jeter pencil himself into hitting leadoff every inning?
