For most who read my blog and for those who know me, I am a die-hard New York Yankees fan. So, I am excited that Derek Jeter homered on his 3,000th hit. This marks a special day for those who have followed Jeter’s career over time.
Jeter is a world-class athlete, and he has a fan following that is large. Why, you may ask? Well, Jeter is not like many baseball players, who have fallen prey to steroid scandals. Jeter plays for the love of the game, and this would explain the following.
3,000 hits is no small feat, and Jeter shows class through his appearance at the press conference after the game (Source: CBS Sports). It’s a great day to be a Yankees fan.
