How Derek Jeter's World Series Performance Made Me a Yankee Fan Again

Derek Jeter is arguably one of the best shortstops to ever play for the New York Yankees. He as topped 3000 hits and made me a fan of the game again.

In 1996, Derek Jeter changed all of that. His enthusiasm for the game and style of play brought me back to the New York Yankees. Love or hate him, Jeter's baseball statistics speak volumes about his commitment to the game of baseball. If he stays healthy for a few more years, Jeter could even break Pete Rose's hits record.

I grew up in New Jersey in the 1970s, and when you are a kid in northern New Jersey that liked to watch baseball, there are two teams to cheer for: The Yankees, or the Mets. The Yankee kids vastly outnumbered the Mets kids in our neighborhood. There were only few Mets fans in our neighborhood and they made little noise about their team.

It was not until the game 6 of 1986 World Series when Bill Buckner let a ball slip between his legs and skitter down the first base line that Mets fans were able to rejoice for once. Even though Buckner's play spoiled it for the Red Sox, I was paying little attention to Yankees baseball at that point.

Then in 1996 Derek Jeter burst onto the scene with the New York Yankees. During the regular season Jeter batted .314. He made some hay in the divisional and championship series by batting over .400 for both series. However, his average dropped to .250 in the World Series. In his first full year of play Jeter was selected as the 1996 American League Rookie of the Year.

The Yankees missed out on the 1997 World Series, but by then I was back watching baseball again and Jeter turned in a respectable year by batting .291 and playing a 159 games. He also solidified himself as the Yankees shortstop by making incredible defensive plays.

The Yankees went on the play in 4 World Series in a row, winning three of them. In the 2000 World Series, "the prince of New York" won the MVP award after batting .409. In the 2001 ALDS game against the Oakland A's, Jeter made the incredible flip toss play to get Giambi out as he was headed for home plate. Although the Yankees went on to lose to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2001 World Series, it was the gutsy all-out play of the Yankee captain that has kept me interested in following the Yankees.

J. A. McLynne has been a Yankees fan on again, off again, and then on again since 1977.
