Taken with the sixth pick in the 1992 MLB Draft by the Yankees, Jeter made his big-league debut in 1995, playing 15 games. He became New York’s starting shortstop the following season and was the unanimous choice for American League Rookie of the Year, earning all 28 first-place votes after hitting .314 with 10 home runs and 78 runs batted in.

1996 was also the season Jeter won the first of five World Series titles, also doing so in 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2009. He was named team captain in 2003 and played his final game for the Yankees in 2014. His famous No. 2 was retired by the team in 2017, and he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2021. His enshrinement in Cooperstown was delayed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic that canceled the 2020 ceremony.

He’s also a member of the 3,000 hits club, currently sitting in sixth place on the all-time list with 3,465. “The Captain” was a 14-time All-Star, a five-time Gold Glove Award winner, a five-time Silver Slugger Award winner, a two-time Hank Aaron Award winner, and was named MVP of the 2000 World Series.
