Overview
Derek Jeter is undoubtedly the most talked about, argued about, cheered, booed and ultimately respected baseball player of his generation. And as public a figure as he has been, he is in many ways the least known. That changes now as Ian O Connor, one of the best sports writers anywhere, goes deep and does what no one has quite been able to do: Tell us a bit about who Derek Jeter really is. Joe Posnanski, author of The Machine
Deftly told. Washington Post
In The Captain, Ian O Connor draws on unique access to Derek Jeter and more than 200 new interviews to reveal how a biracial kid from Michigan became New York s most beloved sports figure and the face of the steroid-free athlete. O Connor takes us behind the scenes of a legendary baseball life, from Jeter s early struggles in the minor leagues, when homesickness and errors threatened a stillborn career, to the heady days of Yankee superiority and nightlife, to the battles with former best friend A-Rod. All along the way, Jeter has made his Hall-of-Fame destiny look easy. But behind that leadership and hero s grace there are hidden struggles and complexities that have never been explored, until now.
