NY Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter Out For Season

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter fields the ground ball awkwardly, resulting in a fractured ankle that will sideline him for the rest of the postseason




New York's Derek Jeter fractured his left ankle in the 12th inning of Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. Yankee fans sat stunned yesterday while they watched Derek Jeter  being helped off the field.

The New York shortstop silenced the crowd when he went down and didn’t get up after making a tumbling stop a ground ball on Jhonny Peralta’s grounder in the 12th inning.

Jeter appeared to stumble as he took several steps to his left for the sharp grounder, went down and winced in pain as he flipped the ball toward second base. He then rolled onto his stomach, and a collective gasp was heard when the player who symbolizes championship baseball didn’t get up.

Jeter remained on his side, rolling slightly, as trainer Steve Donahue and manager Joe Girardi checked him out. He was helped up, and he put an arm around Girardi and Donahue. They coaxed him off the field with Jeter not moving his left leg as chants of “Derek Jeter!” rang out.

“You can see the disappointment in his face,” Girardi said after the Yankees’ 6-4 loss.

Girardi said the injury won’t jeopardize Jeter’s career. But the recovery will be about three months. Girardi stated after the game that infielder Eduardo Nunez would replace Jeter on the roster.
