View Full Version : One of the many reasons to like Jeter

I am definately not a NY fan but I certainly don't get all the Jeter bashing in the other thread. So in an effort towards full disclosure:


Also, last year through the Jeter's Leaders program he purchased a large block of seats during the Yankees - White Sox series for Chicago area kids who, as the website says demonstrated "academic achievements, extracurricular activities and community service."

Just so you know.

He may be the only Yankee I will/ever liked. Marino Rivera doesn't really bother me either, because you hardly know he's there when it isn't the 9th inning. But Jeter plays the game right and has a good head on his shoulders. It's a shame that can't be said for the rest of the team.
But our team, on the other hand, yyyyyyyyyyes:bandance:

Jeter's a stud.. plan and simple

Did he allow the kids to berate A-Rod after the game as well?

Were there any 180 degree spins in mid air during this?

I like Jeter. Very stand up thing he did.

I've always liked Jeter. He has always been very professional and shows class unlike most athletes.

Jeter seems like a great guy. Does anyone actually doubt that?

He's just not nearly as good of a player as people make him out to be. He's basically an average fielder and slightly above average hitter.

exactly. i agree he acquires a little too much attention for his abilities, but he is pretty good. I like him more for the way he plays the game. a hard worker with class

I like Jeter completely outside of the game. Anything directly associated with baseball not so much.
