It seems more and more likely that the New York Yankees’ starting shortstop and captain Derek Jeter will be ready for the start of opening day on April 1, 2013.
The 38-year-old future Hall of Famer had practiced for the first time today. It was Jeter’s very first workout since breaking his ankle during the American League Championship series last year against the Detroit Tigers.
Derek Jeter had done some on field running and agility drills in order to get back into shape and return to becoming one of the best hitters in the league.
Last season, Jeter despite his age had a .316 batting average, over 200 hits, 15 homeruns and 58 RBIs. If the New York Yankees have any chance of returning to the playoffs, the team will for sure need their leader.
When the Bronx Bombers take the field against the Boston Red Sox on opening day, Derek Jeter will be a wearing a Yankees uniform.
Certainly great news for Yankees fans.
