Derek Jeter


The Subway Series between the Mets and Yankees proved to be rather one-sided, thanks in large part to the play of Derek Jeter. The Yankees were up two games to one when the Captain started Game 4 with a jolt, belting the first pitch of the night from Bobby Jones over the Shea Stadium wall. It would be a sign of things to come as he lined another home run in Game 5, evening the score at two in the sixth. Jeter and Co. would win 4-2, clinching their fourth world title in five seasons.
