Yankee Stadium Legacy: #84 Derek Jeter

The New York Yankees knew that they had something special when they called up Derek Jeter to the major leagues in 1995. The New Jersey native immediately stepped up for his first full season in 1996 batting .314 with 78 RBI's and 104 runs scored. Jeter won the American League Rookie of the Year Award that season as well as his first of five World Series rings. The hits kept coming as Jeter pounded out 203 hits in 1998 and a career high 219 hits in 1999.

84 days until Yankees Opening Day.
