Derek Jeter’s twentieth and final season in Major League Baseball truly marks the end of a sports era. The New York Yankees’ shortstop—a five-time World Series victor, team captain since 2003, and one of the greatest ballplayers of all time—is a beloved and inspiring role model who displays the indefinable qualities of a champion, on and off the field.
Jeter Unfiltered is a powerful collection of never-before-published images taken over the course of Derek’s final season. Fans will have unprecedented access to “The Captain,” as the famously private baseball legend takes us behind the scenes—inside his home, the stadium, the gym, at his Turn 2 Foundation events, fortieth birthday party, and more—as he looks back with candor and gratitude on his baseball career. The result is an intimate portrait bursting with personality, professionalism, and pride.
Jeter Unfiltered is Jeter as you have never seen him before: unguarded, unapologetic…unfiltered.
do—particularly in a game, because a lot can go wrong with it. It’s like anything else: I got there through repetition and focus. You continue to work on your skills and improve and refine your game, and some things that really work for you come out of it. If you continue to work on your defense and offense, honing your abilities in every aspect of your game, good things will happen. I like to think that I was an okay athlete growing up, and I think playing other sports helped me to learn
run it, and now my sister is taking it over. I left home when my sister was in seventh grade, so aside from talking on the phone a lot, I missed her growing up. But we’ve grown a lot closer in our adult lives and I’m happy that we work on the foundation together. Turn 2 has far surpassed anything I could have imagined when my family and I first discussed creating this foundation during my rookie season, and spending more hands-on time with our programs and participants is a major priority for me
when I first signed with the Yankees in the minors, and we were teammates when I was called up to the majors. He’s still one of my best friends. He lives down in Tampa as well, so we spend a lot of time together, and as you can see in this picture, I’ve got him laughing. People tend to think I don’t have a funny side, but trust me, I do. Scooter I loved listening to Phil Rizzuto broadcast when I was growing up, just all the funny things he would say and his amazing voice. That’s how I got to
Series in 2000 was the one we had to win. If we hadn’t, I don’t think I would have stayed in New York City. I was living in Manhattan, and everywhere you went for two or three weeks before we even got into the Series, the Yankees-Mets rivalry was all that anyone talked about—I think most Yankee fans felt that if we didn’t win, we could have thrown those three rings that came before out the window. So that was a big showdown for us, and a very important victory. Don’t Let Defeat Beat You Losing
the Yankees. I almost didn’t believe it, given the history of the team and all the great players who have worn the pinstripes. I was well aware that Gehrig had the most hits, but I tried to keep all of that “history-making” stuff out of my mind. If you play long enough, if you’re consistent, and if you stay healthy, good things may happen. I never set out to pass Gehrig in hits; it was never a goal of mine. I must say, though, that as soon as I got close I was reminded of it constantly, because
