On October 31st, 2001, the New York Yankees faced the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 4 of the World Series. The two teams were tied in the 10th inning until Derek Jeter stood true to his nickname of ‘Captain Clutch’ and smashed a home run. The Yankees won and Jeter earned himself a new nickname – Mr. November, because the clock had struck midnight. He has since achieved countless accolades and earned numerous titles. But one that he’s most proud of is how his non-profit organization has continued to grow.

The popular artist is Earth, Wind, and Fire, a band formed in 1969 but still wildly popular. In a few months, near the end of summer, the musical group will perform in Bridgeport.
