Derek Jeter is retiring this year, he played for the Greensboro Hornets for a partial season 1992 and full season in 1993.

As with Don Mattingly, I am sure that everybody “remembers” seeing Jeter play. But Jeter has only played the shortstop position, so it will be hard to mix up those stories.

Robert Stutts told us of dodging those throws to first, even from the safety of the “Baby Grandstand”, he eventually found safety from Jeter’s errant throws in the Left Field Grandstand. That signature through while turning and in the air helped him with his South Atlantic League record 56 errors while earning the “Most Outstanding Major League Prospect” from SAL managers. Needless to say, he perfected that throw later in life.

While the Hornets are gone and the Grasshoppers are now Marlins, I suspect that something will be done to celebrate of the greater players that spent time in Greensboro this year.

Stay tuned and tell us your memories.
