I never got to see any of these guys play. My dad recalls of a time at Yankee Stadium, when he had the honor of cheering on some of the legends above.
The best similarity to this experience is the honor I have had regarding Derek Saunders Jeter play.
The face of the New York Yankees, moreover he is also of the entire sport of baseball. Jeter is the unspoiled captain of both his own team and our countries as well.
The Yankee fans verify Jeter a hero for the way he represents us continuously. He is our ego because no matter what Jeter is our Yankee captain.
To be proud tonight of witnessing Jeter tie the record of the distinguished Lou Gehrig for most hits as a New York Yankee would be an understatement. I was full of pride.
Being just ecstatic for someone who has brought so much celebration to a tarnished sport for doing it the right way. Jeter is a role model to the world for his team spirit.
An example in all aspects; for his talent on the field, his fondness for the history of a game that he has never taken for granted and for the manner he conveys himself as an overall person.
Derek Saunders Jeter is an inspiration. He deserves everyone’s congratulations for making history tonight.
