For about 20 years, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been a star in Major League Baseball.
He was a star again at Tuesday night's MLB All-Star Game. The star. It started with a standing ovation when he walked onto the field for his first at-bat and continued when he left the field to another standing O in the fourth inning with two hits. Nevermind the fact that National League pitcher Adam Wainwright gifted Jeter with a big fat one right over the plate for a heart-warming double in that leadoff at-bat. It was the biggest stage so far on Jeter's farewell tour, much like Mariano Rivera's season-long goodbye last season.
It would be easy to take this space to list Derek Jeter's accomplishments and statistics. After all, Tuesday night marked the 14th All-Star appearance from a player with five World Series rings. But this isn't the place for that. As much a Jeter is known as one of the most respected and professional athletes in the world of sports, he is famously known for being private as well. But there's one thing we've always known: Jeter scores big off the field, too. When it comes to dating, his stats speak for themselves.
We have to thank Sports Nation for tweeting an absolutely incredible Derek Jeter "Dating Diamond" during the game.
