Derek Jeter - The Man of the Hour

All baseball fans must admire Derek Jeter's performance today.  He got his 3000th hit which was a home run.  He went 5 for 5 and almost hit for the cycle.  To put icing on the cake, his 8th inning single drove in the 5th run for the Yankees  which gave the Yankees the lead with Mariano Rivera getting the save.

The second hero of the day has to be Christian Lopez who caught the historic ball.  He could have auctioned off the ball, but chose to give it to Jeter.  The Yankee management rewarded him with four seats in a Yankee Stadium suite for the rest of the season - including the playoffs and World Series.  This young man became an instant celebrity.
