My 11 year old grandson plays baseball and I was looking for a gift that was unique and different than the usual shirt or bat or ball. I've always admired Derek Jeter and how he has become such an idol and role model for young athletes. I have purchased multiple Derek Jeter books and many of them are geared towards middle school readers. I have read every book and love to discuss them with my grandson. Most notable is how Derek progressed from sandlot baseball to a famous Yankee shortstop, and the kind of commitment and dedication it took to fulfill his dream.
