MLB Notebook: Ron, Jeter, #29
After thirteen seasons as the skipper of the Minnesotta Twins Ron Gardenhire is out. The Twins today fired the beloved Gardnehire after the team's third consecutive 90 loss season.
In 2002, Gardenhire was named manager of the Twins and won the AL Manager of the year in 2010.
What can I say about the Captain that hasn't been said already? Derek Jeter played, appreciated respected and loved the game the way it was supposed to be. The picture perfect model for those teaching the game. A man's man. A legend and a true professional. The game will feel the loss of this true ambassador but his memory will live on in baseball folk lore perhaps forever.
On behalf of true baseball fans everywhere I'd like to simply say thank you Mr. Jeter.
The post season is finally upon and this year there is one reoccurring theme in the AL Wildcard match up, the number 29.
