by Derek Jeter

What is it really like being a superstar shortstop with four World Series rings, MVP awards from the All-Star Game and the World Series, and a long-term contract playing for the best team in baseball? In Game Day, New York Yankee Derek Jeter takes you behind the scenes for an intimate look at his life on and off the field during spring training, the regular season, and the 2000 World Series.With never-before-seen photographs that capture private moments at home and public moments at home plate, Game Day is a unique look at how a world-class athlete like Derek Jeter is able to push himself to win, whether it is the 50th game of the 162-game season or Game 5 of the World Series. Divided into three parts, Game Dayinvites Derek ’s fans to see how he gets ready every year for spring training, how he makes it through grueling regular-season games, and how he tackles each game in the postseason, where every run scored and every play made is the difference between going home in victory or in defeat.Beautifully designed and full of exclusive, candid shots, Game Day is a true insider ’s peek into Derek ’s life. Fans can see Derek warming up with fellow Yankees at spring training and before games, goofing off with Bernie Williams, sharing a meal with Tino Martinez, relaxing at his home in Tampa, getting his hair cut at his apartment in New York, working out to stay in shape all season, walking the streets of the Big Apple, hugging his parents and sister after winning the World Series, and making the big plays that have made him one of the most thrilling baseball players in the major leagues today. And fans can read about how Derek approaches each game, hones his skills, sharpens his mental focus, and stays competitive throughout the entire season, leading up to the biggest game days of all: the championship play-offs and the World Series.Game Day goes beyond the roped-off sections of the stadiums and gives fans a perfect picture of what it ’s like to be baseball ’s most popular rising star.

fabulous book - great info, amazing photos. the only problem? I have to share it with my son, as i gave it as a gift to him. Jeter is spectacular, and this book is a must have for any true fan.
My son is a bonified Yankee fan for years. I ordered this book for him. Upon receiving it, I found it only to be a PICTURE BOOK, with hardly any writing involved. To make matters worse, it was expensive, especially for what I bought! I'm not even going to give it to him--I'm too ashamed! If I saw this in a book store and had the opportunity to look through it, I would have never bought--and I'm sure that he would not have either!
I recommend this book because it tells what Derek Jeter, of the Yankees, does at home. He is a very ordinary person. He drives himself around, and does his own laundry. " I am a couch potato." This is the very thing I never hear a famous person say. " I always put time in for fans." He gives his signature to anyone he can. Derek Jeter is a very responsible person.
This book has excellent large photos (the ones from Sports Illustrated are spectacular). It is a little thin on details, but it is catering as a photo book, so no disappointments there. Even the text that is provided is unique, educational and entertaining. Great as a gift for Jeter or Yankees fans and something to leave laying around for guests to read.
This was an inspiring and a sensational book to read as a kid.
This book was excellent! It gives you a great inside look on Derek Jeter's gameday preperation. The quality of the pictures were excellent. He is a great role model. I hope he writes many more!
