The only authorized full-color book commemorating Derek Jeter’s iconic baseball career with the New York Yankees, featuring archival images and original photos of his final 2014 season from renowned photographer Christopher Anderson.
Derek Jeter’s twentieth and final season in Major League Baseball truly marks the end of a sports era. The New York Yankees’ shortstop—a five-time World Series victor, team captain since 2003, and one of the greatest ballplayers of all time—is a beloved and inspiring role model who displays the indefinable qualities of a champion, on and off the field.
Jeter Unfiltered is a powerful collection of never-before-published images taken over the course of Derek’s final season. Fans will have unprecedented access to “The Captain,” as the famously private baseball legend takes us behind the scenes—inside his home, the stadium, the gym, at his Turn 2 Foundation events, fortieth birthday party, and more—as he looks back with candor and gratitude on his baseball career. The result is an intimate portrait bursting with personality, professionalism, and pride.
Jeter Unfiltered is Jeter as you have never seen him before: unguarded, unapologetic…unfiltered.

This spring training was different, because more than ever before, I focused on trying to enjoy it. When everyone shows up for spring training, all they look forward to is the end of it. Most guys just can’t wait to get out there on Opening Day and start playing. A countdown begins—thirty days left, twenty days left, and so on—it’s all the guys talk about. I’ve done that, too, in the past, but not this time. I went in and tried to enjoy every day, without thinking about the end of it. The end would come soon enough.

First off forget being a "Yankee Hater", this is not that type of book. Jeter is a "Role Model" not just for kids but for all, this book tells the last season and talks of what he learned, who taught him and where he wishes to go. Jeter is so rare among sports personalities, to be with one team only, to live out a dream and be appreciate of it. This is a "Coffee Table" book, some reading, but brief, a lot of great pictures. This book should be a part of your library, forget getting it on a nook, get the book, the cost is very low for what you are getting. This is how Jeter wishes to be remembered, pass this book down to your kids, best yet give it to your kids, male or female, they can pass it down. RESPECT the key word, this is a must, I can not stress this enough. So get the book, the actual pick up, hold in your hands, book, you will not regret it. This book is not met to be a Ebook, not meant to be on a nook, kindle, any electronic devise we have today, this is to be a book you hold, you feel, and most of all will share with your children and brag about to friends about this great book you read.
If you're a Jeter fan, this is a fantastic book. The photos are great and I loved seeing Derek and his family throughout the book. It's obvious, family is very important to him as portrayed throughout the book.
I have purchased 5 copies of this book! My family and I have been YANKEE fans fans for over 31 years and since this man joined the team he has been awesome! We even had the pleasure of traveling twice to New York to see this man in action.It was so unbelievable and so well worth the travel. Once Derek announced his retirement we were defestated.Once it was. Announced he had written this book we had to get every man in our family a copy and of course my daughter who is the biggest Derek Jeter fan.This book,is amazing in every page in every story and it is authentic.Please buy a copy for every one who is a baseball fan because this man is amazing!
this is a picture book of Derek's last season and events of importance in his life and his friends and family.
