If you have time now, I urge you to listen to these two audio files. If not, make it a point to listen tomorrow. If you’re a Yankees fan who appreciates the history of your team, you will enjoy it.
First is Derek Jeter, who talks about his milestone and what it means to him:
This second file is Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and Alex Rodriguez, who were interviewed together. They tell stories about seeing Derek for the first time when he was a skinny 18-year-old kid and what he means to them. The emotion that show and genuine respect for the guy stands out.
Ballplayers often tell large group interviews what they think people want to hear. What these guys said tonight seemed to come from the heart. Give a listen:
That’s it for tonight. Derek wins, Yankees lose. Magic number sticks at 14. But those pesky Angels are only 5.5 games back now.
