ESPN Inside Access – Derek Jeter (DVD)

ESPN Inside Access grants fans an unprecedented look into the lives of sports living legends. Witness “Mr. November’s” greatness first-hand in this in-depth and unique profile of Yankees All-Star Derek Jeter.

Lauded for his signature moments, including “The Flip” and “The Dive”, and cheered for his stats and on-field heroics (career batting average of .317, three Gold Gloves, two Silver Slugger Awards), Derek Sanderson Jeter has risen to MLB superstardom. Since making his big league debut in 1995, Jeter has led the Yankees with his bat, his glove and a champion s will. The only player in MLB history to win MVP of both the All-Star Game and the World Series in the same year (2000), the All-Star shortstop has guided his team to four World Series titles in five appearances and has been in the playoffs every year of his career.

Filled with rare footage of Jeter’s minor league stint with the Columbus Clippers, interviews with family, teammates and broadcasters, exciting MLB footage, and funny off-the-field appearances on such shows as “Saturday Night Live”, witness the Yankees’ captain as you never have before. Go beyond the diamond to understand why Derek Jeter, in the tradition of such legends as Mantle, DiMaggio and Ruth, is the Yankees’ next great legacy.

Crystal’s Grand Entry (Crystal Blake Series, Book 3)

From School Library Journal ea. vol: (Quick Fox Bks.). CIP. Chariot Bks: David C. Cook. 1986. pap.$2.95. Grade 5-8 Blend a Nancy Drew mystery with a horse story, add a dash each of Christian precepts and “The Girls of Canby Hall,” and transport the mixture to Idahothe result is this fluffy Western series. Crystal is a cute, blonde 14 year old who seems to leap from one adventure to another, accompanied by her trusty horse, her handsome boyfriend, and her Nez Perce girlfriend. In this formula fiction, wholesome Crystal faces few problems. Her horse Caleb always performs to perfection, winning a series of events for the high-school rodeo team. With her cohorts, she easily solves the mystery in each volume. Her major fault seems to be her ever-present jealousy regarding her boyfriend. Although the plotlines are fast-moving, the writing is awkward and the editing sloppy. Except for Gabrielle, the wise-cracking Native American, characters are cardboard. Even the horse, whose presence will attract readers, lacks personality. Some scenes authentically portray rodeo action, but they’re overshadowed by others that are “saddled” with irrelevant dialogue or are eminently laughable. The frequent mention of the Lord and Crystal’s reliance on prayer might increase the series’ appeal to some readers, but for superior rodeo fiction, stick with Lynn Hall’s Tin Can Tucker (Scribners, 1982).
