Item description for On the Field with...Derek Jeter (Athlete Biographies) by Matt Christopher...

Discusses the personal life and career of the baseball player who became Rookie of the Year as the New York Yankee's shortstop and helped the team win the World Series.

Publishers Description
When he was a little boy, Derek Jeter dreamed only one dream -- he wanted to play shortstop for the New York Yankees. Today, Derek Jeter lives that dream, and more. He has been the team's star shortstop since 1996 and been a major reason the Yankees have won three World Series Championships. His outstanding plays in the field combined with his powerful batting make him a force to be reckoned with, but it's his positive attitude and hard work that have earned him the respect and admiration of his teammates and his fans. In a sport filled with superstars, Derek Jeter has proven he has what it takes to rise to the top.

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Field with...Derek Jeter (Athlete Biographies)?

Baseball Sensation  Dec 15, 2006
On the Field with Derek Jeter

On the Field with Derek Jeter is my favorite book because it is about my favorite player dreaming to be the player he is today! The setting is mostly on the baseball field. This biography is written by Matt Christopher and he has lots of good biographies. Derek Jeter is the main character and there are lots of people that helped him make his dream come true, like his dad! My favorite part is when he is assigned to the Minor Leagues! The book starts when his mom and dad meet. The theme of the book would be Derek Jeter's comes true. The book starts very exciting even thow it is very serious.
And I think anyone who is a baseball fan or a Yankees fan will love this book!

Best shortstop in New York history  Oct 12, 2005
I am a huge fan of Derek Jeter's. That's why I chose this book. I gave it five stars because Matt Christopher described every part of Derek's life accurately. I had already read Derek's autobiography and in that book I learned that his Dad made him sign contracts. In these contracts with his father, Derek had to promise to get good grades -- or else he didn't get to play in any All Star games or anything. Later, dude!
Must read at the Plate with Derek Jeter  Jan 26, 2005
The book I'm reviewing is At the Plate with Derek Jeter by Matt Christopher. I think this book deserves five stars. This book is a Derek Jeter biography. A problem that occurs in this story is when he's in high school. He almost gets cut from the team. This tells you how Derek Jeter became a pro baseball player. I would recommend this book to anybody.

Great book to read with a young baseball fan  Jan 9, 2005
This series in general, and the Jeter book in particular, are great for a 5-10 year old sports nut. I read this with our 6 year old, a chapter a night for a couple weeks.

It's well written and moves quickly.

It makes reading fun by being about something a sports fan kid will really enjoy.

And Jeter in particular is a good story because he's such an great role model for kids -- he crosses racial divides, espouses the virtue of hard work, respect and not taking anything for granted.

Highly recommended
