How much does one man mean to any sports team? Of course there are all sorts of factors to take into account.
But what about a man who the whole team hold in their heart even if it’s unclear right at this moment hwo well he’s going to be able to play in the future?
Well one man can mean a lot, can symbolize a future, if the team is the Yankees and the man in question is their Captain, Derek Jeter.
Jeter last played on Oct 31 2012 when he broke his ankle when playing against the Detroit Tigers.
He’s had the surgery and he’s worked his way through an incredible number of fielding and baserunning drills in preparation for a return. He’s practised his batting as well but he didn’t get a very big workout during his first game playing the Philadelphia Phillies.
It didn’t really matter, just being there stood for a lot: for hope and for courage and for what the Yankee fans expect from their team. COMMENT on how much you think Jeter’s return will affect the Yankees for the rest of the Season.
