This story is about one of the greatest baseball players Derek Jeter,who played in the major leagues for more than 17 years. He was drafted in high school by the New York Yankees but he was undecided if he wanted to go to college in Michigan first. The yankees gave him a contract he couldn't refuse so he choose to play baseball and took college classes during the off season.
His big break came in 1995 when he was called up from the minors to fill in for the injured yankee who was playing shortst

One of the books I read during the first quarter was Derek Jeter: Daring to Dream by Stew Thornley. The book is about Derek Jeter and all that he has accomplished all his life as a baseball player. He played in the majors for 20 seasons.
What was good about the book was that it was very descriptive and it stated all he went through to pursue his dream. I also liked how it talked about his teammates and his relationship with them and how they worked together. They talked about all of his awards

He has played for the Yankeeys for a long time and has won multiple world series. He is an outstanding player on and off of the field. He has given away lots of money to charities. He is one of my favorite baseball players. i want you to read this bokk and tell me what you think .
