MLB reports, "In the hours after Derek Jeter tied Lou Gehrig on the Yankees' all-time hit list Wednesday, Jeter spoke of two people who had been camped out in New York all week, watching his every at-bat since Monday."
Those people are his precious parents. Derek Jeter, NY Yankees shortstop and heart throb of NYC, tied Lou Gehrig's all time hit record, and tonight at 7pm est. Derek Jeter's first hit will pass, Lou Gehrig's hit record, and his parents, fans, and I will be there rooting him on.
He is not only a wonderful player, but he is a nice person. He won over New York City, and as Frank Sinatra said, "If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere."
