Derek Jeter’s Name To Be Added To His Old High School Baseball Field
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP)—Derek Jeter’s high school is in the process of naming its baseball field after the New York Yankees’ star.
The school district’s board recently approved a committee’s recommendation that Kalamazoo Central’s field be named Derek Jeter Field. School spokesman Alex Lee says there are still some logistical matters that must be addressed. The board’s approval is obviously a big step.
Jeter graduated from the school in 1992. As a senior, he hit .508 with four home runs and 23 RBIs in 23 games.
He was inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame in 2007.
