JETER
Continued from Page 11B
Boston Red Sox. With the score tied at
11 in the bottom of the 10th and'two out,
Jeter singled up the middle to knock in
the winning run, his third hit and third
RBI in six at-bats. Jeter's teammates
mobbed him at first base as the win
brought the Yankees one game closer to
their first division title since 1981.
Think about it. Just four years ago,
instead of rounding the bases in Yankee
Stadium, Jeter rounded Palmer Field to
get to Couzens Hall. He took the same
100-level intro courses and walked the
same Ann Arbor streets as any freshman
on campus.
The 18-year-old shortstop started out
one step ahead of every body else. A fast
learner, an astute student.
"I pretty much have been playing with
older players all my life;" Jeter says. "I
grew up kind of quick, so I'm just used
to it."
But more than anything, he is used to
success.
When the Yankees traveled to Detroit
a few weeks ago for a three-game series
with the Tigers, the colors of the empty
seats stuck out more than the bodies.
But Jeter's fan club showed up, name-
ly his parents, his high school coach and
Freehan. Three of the most important
cornerstones of his young life watched
as Jeter returned to his home state once
again.
And while the media and fan atten-
tion centered around Yankee teammate
Cecil Fielder and his return to Tiger
Stadium for the first time since his trade
to New York, Jeter found time to chat
with family and friends. But this time,
he stood on the field instead sitting in
the stands.
"We used to come to Tiger Stadium a
lot" Jeter said. "I was a Yankee fan, so
we used to come watch the Yankees play.
My dad took me to a lot of regular-sea-
son and playoff games, so it was always
a dream for me to play in Tiger
Stadium."
At Kalamazoo Central, Jeter excelled
quickly in his two years of varsity base-
ball. He hit .557 in a full junior season
and .508 in only 23 games as a senior,
due to a severe ankle injury.
"He has a lot of natural ability" said
Jeter's high school coach, Bob Zomel.
"He has good foot speed and a good

arm. But what I believe has made him
the ballplayer he is today is his excellent
work ethic.
"He was always the first one on the
field, the last one off."
Freehan saw all of Jeter's talent during
his junior year and knew he was some-
thing special.
"I saw him in some field ... and want-
ed to see what he was doing when
nobody was there" Freehan said. "He
was the first one there, and he took a zil-
lion ground balls before even the rest of
the team got there.
"I liked his work ethic and his
demeanor in a game. His enthusiasm
and ability were very, very impressive:'
Soon after Jeter's junior season, the
Michigan coaches had Jeter come down
to Ann Arbor for a recruiting visit. Jeter
saw a football game, met some of his
possible teammates and watched a prac-
tice.
Jeter committed to Michigan in the
early signing period in November:
Jeter was taken aback by the athletic
and academic combination the
University presented him.
"I remember there being a lot of peo-
ple," Jeter said. "It was a good academ-
ic school, and school always came first.
(Michigan) just seemed the perfect fit
for me."
But not for long. After Jeter's senior
season, he was selected as the sixth pick
in the June 1992 amateur draft - the
first high school player chosen. In a lit-
tle more than a month, the Yankees
signed Jeter to a minor league contract
with a bonus that stated New York would
pay for Jeter's education.
What a deal. Jeter was able to attend
his top school and play for the major
league organization of his dreams. And
he was being paid for both.
Immediately after signing, Jeter was
sent to the Yankees single-A affiliate in
Tampa where he struggled in his first
year.
Jeter stuck around until the end of the
summer and then went to play winter
ball in Florida. He fared better in his sec-
ond year in the minors, hitting .295 at
single-A Greensboro.
Jeter came back to Ann Arbor in the
fall of 1993. He lived in an apartment
and practiced with the Wolverines but
didn't take classes. He spent most of the
time with his girlfriend, who graduated
from Michigan last year.
The shortstop glided through the
minors in 1994, being promoted to
Albany and Columbus, the double-A
and triple-A affiliates, respectively. The
awards started to pile up - Minor
League Player of the Year awards from
USA Today, The Sporting News and
Baseball America.

JOE WESTRATE/Dail
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter could have been fielding grounders for Michigan
this spring, instead, he decided to sign with New York, and after a short stay in
the minor leagues, is now in the majors in the thick of the pennent race.

While Jeter progressed quickly
through the minors, life in the minors
was different from high school ball.
"(The minors) are not as easy as peo-
ple may think;' Jeter said. "You get used
to playing every day, being on the road,
living out of a suitcase. It's a tough expe-
rience"
After his second full year in the
minors, the question was not if he was
going to be called up to the majors, it
was when and how soon. On May 29,
1995, Jeter made his major league debut
at Seattle, going hitless in five at-bats.
Zomel made the trip to Yankee
Stadium to see his home debut. Jeter
and Zomel had agreed that his high
school coach would be there for the
home opener, and that's what happened.
Jeter says that whenever he has a chance,
he is going to get his degree at Michigan.
But he doesn't have the time to do that
now. The rookie is right in the middle of
a pennant race.
EU
In his trip to Detroit three weeks ago,
Jeter looked relaxed talking to his team-
mates, signing autographs for fans who
knew Jeter was a Michigan kid, and

chatting with his family and friend;. '
In the opening game against the
Tigers, it didn't take long for Jete to
make an impact. He tripled on the first
pitch of the game. The Yankees went: on
to win 9-8 in a four-hour marathon. The
rookie finished the night 3-for-5 with
one run and two RBI.
This wasn't some younger Derek
Jeter. This was the Derek Jeter that
should get used to. Derek Jetet
probably be around for a long time.
His mother couldn't be happier at how
her son has grown up. Like basebal
pundits all across the nation, she i
amazed how quickly he has developed.
"I'm very proud of him because this i
what he wanted to do" Dorothy said "
feel at this point of time, he's a couple o
years ahead of where I expected him t
be. He succeeds in everything he put.
down. He just works hard in everythig
Work ethic and success. Two thing
that Jeter is accustomed to. Success a
bat, success on the field, success in the
clubhouse, success at home. With: the
pace that Jeter is going at in just hid
rookie year, there are no limits to wha
he might do.
