This book takes you through the life of Derek Jeter and how all he ever wanted to be was the shortstop for the NY Yankees.

Learn how he was drafted as the first straight out of high school player for the Yankees when he was only 18 years old. You can read about how he worked his way from the A-minor league up to being the starting shortstop for the NY Yankees and fulfilling his life long dream.

    a baseball player

    This book is about the life of Derek Jeter, an all-star baseball player. He plays shortstop for the New York Yankees. My favorite quote from the book is 'If you are dedicated and you work hard, all your dreams will come true.' This tells you that he had to work hard to achieve his dream. During the book they talk about Derek's strides to becoming a major league baseball player. When he was a kid he was a good player, but when he got to high school he was one of the best players in America. In 1991, the New York Yankees drafted him. He had many ups and downs before he finally got to the majors in 1995. The rest of his baseball career in the majors I'll let you read to find out. I thought it was a very good biography, because they had a very good description of Derek¿s life in general. It had cool pictures and illustrations, like the ones where he is making amazing plays. There were also batting and fielding statistics of how well he did. I recommend this book to people that are really into baseball.

    Baseball sucks

    How can you like this stuff. As my 4th grade teacher always says to my not so friend who met derek jeter "Jeter the Cheater." Anyone agree? Reply to R5movieReviewer. 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. At the end you may scream as much as you want abt the winning team wether you like them or not. Tell me how you think youll respond then once it happened post how you did. Tell your friends abt this challenge. I got it on the radio on the joy fm. The morning cruise had jayar this he is a seahawks fan. -R5movieReviewer thx
