Derek Jeter is probably the best player to don the Pinstripes in the 21st century. Although he does not have great batting records from the plate, like Alex Rodriguez and other players, the former Yankees captain will remain one of the finest ever to play in the Bronx.

He was a dominant player and an excellent leader. Everyone is well aware of this fact. But apart from these traits, Jeter is also a wonderful human being. While discussing her first meeting with Derek, Hannah (his wife) opened up about the other side of the Yankees legend and their relationship.
