Ranking New York Yankees Legend Derek Jeter's Greatest Ever MLB All-Star Games
Derek Jeter has had an illustrious career in MLB and Captain Clutch was undeniably a phenom on the diamond. Having been selected for the All-Star games 14 times in his career, here’s a look at 5 of Jeter’s greatest All-Star games.
Firsts are always memorable and that is true for Jeter’s first-ever All-Star game. From looking up to his idols to playing on the field with them, Jeter had come a long way. Jeter replaced A-Rod in the bottom of the fifth.
Jeter is the only player to have won the All-Star game and the World Series Most Valuable Player awards in the same year. He achieved this at the age of 26 in the ‘00 season.
Remembered as the celebration of Ripken, the 2001 All-Star game saw Jeter hit one of 4 homers, resulting in the 4-1 AL win.
In an All-Star game, it is tough to get a 3-for-3 performance. But Jeter, being the legend that he is, has two 3-for-3 games, one of which was the 2004 All-Star.
It is always exciting to play on your home ground. The 2008 All-Star game at the old Yankee stadium was Jeter’s time to bask in some home-field advantage. Jeter was batting second and gave a 1-for-3 performance.
