Reasons Derek Jeter was so respected by fans and peers

Reasons Derek Jeter was so respected by fans and peers
BY JED HUGHES
FOR NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The post-season is indeed different this year with the absence of the New York Yankees and their team captain Derek Jeter. New stars are emerging, and it may not be until next year that we truly appreciate what we had in such a great athlete. Whether you are a Yankees fan or not, most fans -- even the ones in Boston -- recognized that baseball lost a special player now that Jeter has retired.

His game was never really been about numbers. Although Jeter had the most hits in 1999 and 2012 and in runs scored in 1998, he never lead the American League in batting average, home runs, RBI, slugging percentage, or stolen bases. He finished second in the MVP voting in 2006 and twice finished third. However, he was Rookie of the Year Award in 1996, when the Yankees won their first world championship since 1978, and in 2000 was the World Series MVP.
