Happy birthday to the Captain

Today is Derek Jeter’s 36th birthday, and that’s still kind of hard to believe. If you’re going by New York time, Jeter’s clock struck midnight while the Yankees were still on the field against the Dodgers, but in this time zone he was already out the clubhouse door following the Bombers’ 2-1 victory.
“I’m not going to look at him as 36,” Joe Girardi was saying before last night’s game. “I’m going to look at him as still a kid because we expect him to play almost every day. It’s hard to believe he’s 36 years old. I look at Andy and he’s 38 and Mo’s 40 and I think Posada’s 38. It blows me away because when I first saw them they were just kids. They were babies in the baseball world. Now they’re like I felt when I was playing.”
Here’s a birthday cake stat from the folks at Elias Sports Bureau – Jeter has 2,834 career hits, and since 1961, the only players to accumulate more hits prior to turning 36 years old were Hank Aaron (2,956) and Robin Yount (2,868)
On his birthday, Jeter owns a .325 (13-for-40) batting with six runs scored, two doubles, three RBIs and six walks in 10 career games. He has never homered on his birthday, and last played on his birthday in 2007 at Baltimore, going 2-for-4 in a 3-2 Yankees loss.
