O''Connor draws on unique access to Derek Jeter and more than 200 new interviews to reveal how a biracial kid from Michigan became New York''s most beloved sports figure and the face of the steroid-free athlete.
From the Publisher:
Every spring little leaguers across the country squabble over the right to wear his number, 2. Derek Jeter is their hero. He walks in the footsteps of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle and someday his shadow will loom just as large. Yet he has never been the best player in baseball. In fact he hasn't even been the best player on his team. But what he does have is an intangible grace that makes him the face—and the hero—of the last Yankee dynasty, and of America's game. ||In Jeter, Ian O'Connor draws on unique access to Jeter to reveal how a biracial kid from Michigan became New York's most beloved sports figure and the face of the steroid-free athlete.  We learn of his early struggles in the minor leagues, when homesickness and errors made professional baseball seem like a giant mistake. We are transported to his heady days of Yankee superiority, of nightlife and stardom, as the clean cut shortstop becomes the Prince of the City.  We then discover a miserable Jeter as the Yankees gradually lose their dominance. And when his former best-friend, A-Rod, lands in pinstripes we are taken behind-the-scenes of a deeply complicated relationship, as never before. We also witness Jeter lose his mentor, Joe Torre and have to grapple with his declining skills and the declining favor of the clubhouse he has always called home. As Derek Jeter closes in on reaching 3,000 hits, something no Yankee has ever done,  Jeter offers an incisive, exhilarating look at one of the game's greatest players at the apex of his career.  |
