The team captain of the New York Yankees. 
Derek Jeter was born at Chilton Memorial Hospital in Pequannock, NJ and raised in Kalamazoo, MI.
 
Jeter has played for only the Yankees in his career, first playing in the majors in 1995. He was named the 11th Yankee team captain in 2003, the first since Don Mattingly's retirement in 1995. Jeter has won five world series titles with the New York Yankees in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, and most recently in 2009. He leads the New York Yankees in all-time hits, passing Lou Gehrig for the title during the 2009 season. Jeter is expected to eclipse 3,000 hits in his career and is a sure-fire hall-of-famer.
 
Jeter is a 10-time all-star, 4-time New York Yankee player of the year, 3-time gold glover, 2000 All-Star game MVP, 2000 World Series MVP, and 1996 rookie of the year. He is the all-time hits leader among MLB shortstops and is fifth among active players with a .317 lifetime batting average.
