#2 Derek Jeter - "Captain" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. Jeter made one of the most amazing hustle and heads up play I have ever seen in the 2001 ALDS. Tying run on first - double in the right field corner. The Yankees right fielder over threw both cut off men - Jeter came all the way across the diamond - caught the errant throw and backhanded it to Posada who tagged out Giambi. Known as the flip - its worth a you tube look if you missed it live. Jeter  retired with 3465 hits, good for 6th all-time and a career batting average of .310. No other number 2 was ever in contention. Well, we are down to number one. Speaking of amazing plays - this guy made the greatest defensive play in the history of the game - #1
