When Derek Jeter sets his mind to something, he will make sure he gets the job done.

Jeter faced a tough task during Thursday night's Yankees-Astros game in Houston. One Astros fan really wanted the baseball, but the Yankees shortstop made sure he was able to get the ball to a young girl wearing a Jeter shirt he had spotted as he walked over to the stands:

Plenty of fans wanted the Yankees captain to give them a baseball at the end of an inning, but he knew exactly who he would give a baseball to. However, he had a tough time getting the ball to the young girl.

What a great move by Jeter.
