    Jeter Draft Card

    Derek Jeter has played the most games by any man in history who played one defensive position and never played anywhere else. He is the only big leaguer in history with 11 seasons in his career in which he batted over .300 and finished with both double-digit homers and steals. He’s one of only six players who played for the same team at age 20 and after turning 40. (The others: Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Brooks Robinson, George Brett, Cal Ripken Jr.) During his 20 years in the majors, Jeter has played in over 2,900 games (between the regular and post-season) and was never ejected by an umpire. And, he better have a voting percentage of at least 99% when his name first appears on a ballot for the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
