Derek Jeter: SI Sportsman of the Year

Derek Jeter is announced as the 2009 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year at The IAC Building on Tuesday (December 1) in New York City.

The 35-year-old baseball player credited his parents for his successful career. “I thought the cover came out nice. The only thing that I thought was missing from that were my parents on both sides,” Jeter said. “Even if you don’t see them, just know that they’re there beside me at all times.”

“When you think about being a good sportsman, there’s a lot of things that come to mind,” Jeter said. “People tell you it’s success on the baseball field, and I think that’s part of it. I also think there’s a lot of qualities that go into it — hard work, dedication, pride, humility. These are all things that I learned at a very young age.”
