Number 2 - Derek Jeter


Although some people may choose Secretariat as the best to ever wear number 2, I'm nominating Derek Jeter.  Ok, this may fuel the "are animals athletes" debate, but for our purposes, Secretariat is disqualified. The 1996 ROY and captain of the Yankees has a .314 lifetime batting average as of this writing. Some "did you knows" about Derek:

He was named 1992 High School Player of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association
Received a baseball scholarship to the University of Michigan and attended one semester before going to play for the Yanks


  • Holds the record for postseason hits with 142

  • All-time Yankee leader in hits

    Doug Harvey belongs here! The best defenceman of the last century.

    Jeter is a good choice but Secretariat is easily the best ever to wear #2.

    I thought Secratariat was a horse. I guess I didn't realize this was a inter-species competition.
