He also got the golden glove award in 2006-2009.

My impact is that he runs the turn two foundation. The turn two foundation is when Jeter helps inner city children. Also Jeter makes people spend a lot of money on him. They spend a lot of money on him by coming to Yankee stadium to watch him.

I admire him because I play baseball and I want to be pro like him. My favorite team is the Yankees.

The lesson that I learned was if you keep trying you might get what you want. For an example if you do baseball everyday than you might have a chance of pro. Another lesson that I learned was he gives away money to the turn two foundation.
