A five-time World Series champion, Jeter has been a central figure of the Yankees during their success of the 1990s and 2000s due to his hitting ability, baserunning, and leadership on the field and in the clubhouse. He is the Yankees' all-time career leader in hits (3,166), games played (2,484), stolen bases (344), and at bats (10,114).

The following year, he became the Yankees' starting shortstop, won the Rookie of the Year Award, and helped the team win the 1996 World Series.
