One of the least reported aspects of Derek Jeter’s game is his sense of playfulness on the field.
Last night, Eduardo Nunez almost dropped a pop up in the ninth inning. The wind took the ball and Nunez for a ride but he eventually snagged the ball and made the out. Sure enough, there was Jeter with a big smile on his face. If Nunez had dropped the ball he wouldn’t have laughed–at least not until they were out of camera range. He is always tactful.
Still, Jeter never gets cheated on having fun, does he?
This is supposed to be fun, dammit.
