Thank you, Captain.
Derek Jeter. Class, personified.
The coolest pinstripe suit has been worn by – none other than – Derek Jeter over the greater part of the past two decades.
The 11th captain in New York Yankees history, Derek Jeter is the first name that comes to mind when the term, “captain” is uttered. Everything from his electrifying rookie year in 1995, to being the catalyst for the Yankees during their dynasty years, to being known for being the quintessential role model in American professional sports – Derek Jeter has handled fame and fortune – under the bright lights of New York – in only a way that can be described as, “Jeterian”. We thank him for demonstrating excellence, class, and professionalism on and off the field. Derek Jeter not only redefined the “Yankee Way”, but in the process, made all New Yorkers proud. We will forever be lucky to be able to utter the phrase, “I saw Derek Jeter play”.
