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.
