Several of us here at TYA were given an opportunity to take a look at a free copy of Derek Jeter: From the pages of The New York Times, compliments of Abrams Publishing. The 224 page tribute documents the many accomplishments of El Capitán; it goes all the way back to the days of a skinny kid being brought up through the farm system and continues clear through the years Derek claimed his role as Yankee Captain, World Series Champ, and generational icon of present day.
The hardcover features an introduction authored by Tyler Kepner who is a national baseball reporter for The New York Times. The first paragraph reads:
Derek Jeter is a sports hero in the tradition of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle. Admired for his leadership, performance under pressure, and work ethic, Jeter is not only the face of the New York Yankees, but a symbol of the game of baseball. A short list of his accomplishments include: Rookie of the Year, five World Series titles, eleven-time All-Star, five-time winner of the Gold Glove award, four-time winner of the Silver Slugger award, and the first player in history to win the all-star game MVP and the World Series MVP in the same season. With his future now secure as a Yankee, there is no better time to look back on his illustrious career…
While the content can’t help but invoke strong feelings of Bomber/Jeter nostalgia, it’s really the sharp illustrations chronicling the many epic moments of Derek’s tenure that really make the piece the perfect compliment to your coffee table. If you have a chance, be sure to check it out.

For those gamers out there, MLB The Show 2011 also arrived in stores this past week. The graphics are excellent and the game play is smooth. While it still has all the great elements of The Show ’10, it also includes a new CO-OP mode (that can be enjoyed online), a revamped Home Run Derby mode, and of course, updated rosters. Although I personally prefer the classic controls (which are certainly available in the game settings), a lot of players are enjoying the new system featuring an entirely analog control system. Here’s a quick preview for your viewing pleasure; needless to say, the choice of teams in this YouTube clip were not exactly coincidental.
