Here’s Video Of A Teenage, Slightly-Mulleted Derek Jeter, Just Because
Derek Jeter got another hit tonight. As of this writing, he's got 2,998 career hits. He's getting number 3,000 sooner rather than later...perhaps as early as tonight. And in order to properly celebrate the milestone Jeter's about to achieve - a milestone no other Yankee ever has - apparently the Yankees have taken to playing the video you'll see below at Yankee Stadium.
The video depicts a younger Jeter - much, much younger. Also, he has sort of a mullet going on there, was very quiet, and said he was "real homesick" when he first began in pro ball. Awww. Oh, and seeing him with "34" on the back of his jersey is a little bit of a shock too. One thing, though, stands the test of time: Jeter said he "got lucky" to get picked by the Yankees. Looking back almost 20 years later, we'd have to agree that things worked out pretty well.
Here's the video, in case you haven't been to Yankee Stadium/seen this one on the scoreboard lately.
