A Unique Perspective on One of the Greatest Players of All Time

Baseball Immortal: Derek Jeter takes you on a remarkable forty-year journey, letting you step inside the great Yankee shortstop's life and career through his own words and those of the people who have known him best personally and in the sports community. The result is an incredible, insightful look at what made him not only an amazing ballplayer but also an intriguing and complex personality. Baseball fans will relive classic moments from his stumbles in the minor leagues all the way to his magical last major league game at Yankee Stadium in 2014, and learn about the influence of his parents, his inspiring work ethic, his constant drive to win, his leadership, his unrelenting optimism and more.

Everyone has something to say about Derek Jeter-the player known as the face of baseball for two decades, the greatest Yankee of his generation, a man of few public words but uncompromising integrity. The book is packed with quotes by Jeter's parents, friends, teachers and mentors, coaches, scouts, teammates, opposing players, his fans and critics, celebrities, elite athletes like Michael Jordan, writers and broadcasters, managers - including Joe Torre and Joe Girardi - outspoken Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and even two presidents. The big surprise comes from the revealing quotes from Derek Jeter himself, who, during his career, constantly frustrated journalists by keeping his thoughts to himself.

This book provides a remarkable 360-degree view of a future Hall of Fame shortstop, Yankees captain and champion who continues to be an inspiration to baseball players and fans across the nation.
