"Jeter is somebody that, he's not just the captain of the Yankees, he's the captain of all of baseball," Harper said. "He's the true baseball player, and the guy that you want to be like on and off the field. He's somebody that I've looked up my whole career. Being able to play against him was something that, you know, I'll never forget."
"Derek Jeter plays the game the right way. He does everything the right way and that's what made him the person that he is on top of the player that he is."
Jeter is batting .250 with three home runs and 40 RBI this season for the Yankees.
