The Pride of the Yankees is a 1942 American film produced by Samuel Goldwyn, directed by Sam Wood, and starring Gary Cooper, Teresa Wright, and Walter Brennan. It is a tribute to the legendary New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig, who died only one year before its release, at age 37, from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which later became known to the lay public as "Lou Gehrig's disease".

Great ballplayers, like great teams, don't just happen. They are the end result of meticulous (often painful and dreary) planning, revision and execution. But when greatness happensand Derek Jeter is a great player on one of the all-time great Yankee teamsthe results are dazzling.
Author Patrick Giles has succeeded in delivering the dazzle in this hot new bio of Yankee superstar shortstop Derek Jeter. He delves into the Derek Mystique--why he is a favorite of young fans (many of them young women), fellow players and the most hardened baseball watchers. Giles follows Jeter's upbringing in Michigan, his early successes (and failures) in the minor leagues and his eventual stardom on a World Championship ballclub and, in 1998, one of the greatest teams of all time.
But this is not just a baseball story. It's a story about celebrity, the ups and the downs of being in the public eye. Giles shows how young Jeter has worked to prepare himself for his success, to avoid being a flavor of the month (even if that means keeping a certain pop diva at arm's length).
Derek Jeter: Pride of the Yankees is as interesting, as inspiring, as entertaining and, yes, as hot as its subject!

This book is great because it shows how great a player Jeter is. I am his biggest fan and I love him just a little more after reading that. He is what we call a "team player" and I really respect him. I think that he will stay a hero for ages and I hope he doesn't retire for a loooooooonnnnnnngggggg time! This book tells about all the great things he does, facts and info about him, and more! Read it if you get a chance and meet the one, the only, DEEREEEKKKK JEEEEETTTERR!

The first 6 chapters are ok....but the information is very repetitive...from chpt 7 on is for hormonal little girls. The book does chronicle Derek's life but the author could not find enough material to fill the book...it repeats throught the book, a teenage girl would love this book, a person who is a baseball fan will find this painfull, a Jeter fan can get through it. Derek Jeter: A Yankee for the New Millennium is a much better book for baseball fans over the age of 17.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I would definately recommend it to anyone who is curious about Derek Jeter. It gave out a lot of new and interesting facts about him that I didn't know. Whenever I read a chapter, I thought that the book was so good that I had to keep on reading it.I am 11 and I do not think it was my age level though. It was a little confusing, but very interesting!

I think that this book was great! It's got to be the best biography I've ever read. I'm a huge D fan, and I loved every second of this book, from cover to cover! If you like the Yankees even the least bit, you'd love this. It's totally new, and the pictures were awesome! It's a must-have for all Jeter fans! I know I'm getting it for keeps!

I think Mr. Gills is a master craftman who deserve another chance. He has only written this one measly little book, but I believe he's got a bright future ahead. He is a bit verbose, but his description of Derek's kneecaps is priceless. I think anyone under the age of 10 will love this book.
Derek Jeter The PRIDE Of The Yanks is the best book I have ever read. It is full of great discription. I LOVED IT!
