Not only is the spoken-off personnel one of the best to ever represent the esteemed New York Yankees, but his number surely is amongst the very best in the business. On the same note, MLB fans got together on Twitter to deliver heartfelt wishes to the legend on his 48th birthday on Saturday.

To be particularly talking about his stats on his birthday eve, the 48-year-old Yankees legend and first ballot Hall of Famer registered nearly 3,500 hits, 1,923 runs and a .310 career batting average. Moreover, Yankees fans cannot help but determine the best moment for Jeter’s career when he famously marked his clutch postseason exploits that earned him the nickname “Mr November.” To this day they are still spoken proudly off by the home and neutral MLB fans.

That being said, with the legend probably keeping a close eye on the occurrences of the 2022 major league season, it will be interesting to see if Aaron Judge is able to replicate the same form as Derek Jeter did, back in his days. With expectations attached to the former which goes beyond Cloud 9, he is also firmly regarded as the modern version of Jeter in terms of various aspects of the field. Will we witness another Derek Jeter in the making?
