Jeter… No not that guy!

Jeter is a big name in baseball, I mean how can a guy with 10 all star appearances, 4 rings and 3 gold gloves fly under the radar? Not to mention the Yankee captain, Derek Jeter…..

NO NOT THAT JETER.. how about this guy…

1993 Topps – #800 – Shawn Jeter Coming Attraction

Talk about an unfortunate time to come into the league, Shawn Jeter made his MLB debut in 1992 with the Chicago White Sox, his career was short lived lasting only about 4 months. Batting .111 with 7 K’s in 18 plate appearances certainly didn’t help his short career in the bigs. Did you know that Shawn Jeter’s father, Johnny Jeter also played in the bigs for a few teams including the Chi Sox? His career was a bit longer than his son Shawn’s lasting 6 seasons.

Well, it being a Friday in which the Yankees lead by team captain Derek find themselves atop the AL East, I wanted to take a few minutes to recognize the other Jeter’s of the league… here’s to you Shawn Jeter… here’s to you.
