AL Batting Champion
2006: Derek Jeter, Yankees. Can it really be that he turns 32 in June? The career .314 hitter could get a boost with Johnny Damon in front of him.
It’s not a huge reach. Jeter was 2nd in 1999 and 3rd in 2003. So, he’s been close before.
It will probably come down to Derek, Manny, Ichiro, Vlad and Michael Young. Maybe A-Rod too.
Jeter has just as good of a shot at it as anyone in the A.L.
