Looking back: Derek Jeter in 1993


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Love him or hate him, New York Yankees star and Kalamazoo native Derek Jeter will always have a place in baseball history.

Tuesday night, he took the field for his final Major League Baseball All-Star Game. A sellout crowd gave him an enthusiastic welcome.

In 1992, before he made a name for himself, Jeter drafted at No. 6 overall to the MLB and then  spent four seasons in the minor leagues.
