Even during his first outstanding rookie season in Major League Baseball, Derek Jeter was determined to channel his burgeoning success into helping the community. This book explores the ways in which one of the world's top-performing baseball stars has become a role model by practicing what he preaches—eating well and exercising, avoiding drugs and alcohol, and working hard to achieve success. Readers will learn all about Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation, which supports programs that encourage physical fitness and good values. All in all, this book shows the rewards that come from an athlete giving back.
