Jeter is first Yankee to win SI Sportsman award

This is like one of the highest honors that can be given out in sports. Many consider it bigger than an MVP or even a world series ring. It doesn’t just say he is the best in the game. It says he is the best in all of sports, meaning all sports. This my friends is a great honor beyond all comprehension. There are a very limited number of baseball player that have ever been bestowed this honor, they include Cal Ripkin Jr., Sandy Kofax,Randy Johnson,Curt Shilling, and Tom Seaver. Pretty talented bunch of Hall of famers and Hall of farmers to be, dont ya think?
