This Red Sox Fan Is Aplauding Derek Jeter

Anthony EmersonAnalyst ISeptember 10, 2009

Congratulations Derek Jeter.

You are a class act who deserves his 2,721 career hits.

Congratulations Derek Jeter.

You've played for America's Team, won four World Series and are destined for the Hall of Fame.

Congratulations Derek Jeter.

There are only two single digit numbers that are unretired by the Yankees: No. 2 and No. 6. Soon, only No. 6 will remain.

With Derek Jeter getting his 2,721st career hit on September 9, 2009, Jeter cements himself in the Hall of Fame.

And this Red Sox fan is loving it.

Derek Jeter has always been a nice, good, class act kind of guy. If you read my B/R 'short list', you'll see that Jeter is mentioned as one of my favorite athletes. The guy is gritty. I love him. If he was on the Red Sox, he'd be my favorite player, hands down.

The guy isn't like most Yankees (by most Yankees, I mean Johnny Damon and Alex Rodriguez: jerks). He's civil, never dirty and an all-around nice guy.

He is at the utmost tier in major league baseball, now, as he has tied Lou Gehrig's record for most hits by a Yankee.

Congratulations, Derek Jeter.

You have earned the respect of this incredibly biased Red Sox fan.
