The Day Derek Jeter Became The Captain

any other name he was ever given in his walk in life and officially became The Captain. Jeter was named the 11th Yankee Captain in their storied history at age 28. Jeter joins Hal Chase (1912), Roger Peckinpaugh (1914-1921), Babe Ruth (whopping six days in 1922), Everett Scott (1922), Lou Gehrig (1935-1941), Thurman Munson (1976-1979), Graig Nettles (1982-1984), Willie Randolph and Ron Guidry (1986-1989), and Don Mattingly (1991-1995).


  1. A Franchise Player with 21 years seniority, 5 World Series Championship Rings, a career Batting Average of over .300? Yeah, I think that = Captain.

  2. Absolutely. Welcome to the site Jack


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
