After a 6 year hiatus, the Yankees are back in the World Series, which in no small part is due to the stellar postseason performance of Derek Jeter. On September 11th 2009, New York Yankee captain Derek Jeter collected his 2,722 hit, surpassing Lou Gehrig's record for a Bronx Bomber. Jeter added another highlight to his Hall of Fame resume, which already includes a Rookie of the Year Award, 10 All-Star appearances, 3 Gold Gloves and most importantly, 4 World Series Championships. Gehrig had held the record for 70 years, but there was no person more suited to take his place than Jeter, who already had the record for hits in the original Yankee Stadium. Derek Jeter has hand signed this 2009 World Series baseball. A Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included. Joba Chamberlain burst onto the scene in 2007, dominating in a setup relief role like few others ever had before. In 24 innings out of the bullpen in 2007, Chamberlain allowed only 1 earned run, posting a 0.38 ERA. After some experimentation in the starting rotation in 2008 and 2009, the Yankees decided Joba's golden arm was best suited out of the bull pen in 2010, a role he has once again embraced. With experience and consistency, Chamberlain has the necessary skill set to one day take over for Mariano Rivera as the Yankees closer.
