Derek Jeter Reports To Camp, Addresses Media
Derek Jeter has arrived at Yankees Spring Training camp with the rest of the positional players and addressed the media this morning about his ankle. Jeter told reporters that he had a plate and screws inserted into his ankle during the surgery. This plate and screw will remain in his ankle permanently and will cause him to have a lighter than normal Spring Training this year. Jeter also admitted that playing through the deep bone bruise that he got last September was probably the reason for the fracture and subsequent surgery this past October. Jeter also said that he would do it again if the opportunity arose again despite the risk. You have got to love the heart and the fire coming from Derek Jeter.
