Derek Jeter, retired New York Yankee legend, future Hall of Famer, and Kalamazoo native, has written a nice piece on the work and the effect of his Turn 2 Foundation.The reflection appears in the Player's Tribune, the online site of which he is founding publisher.

In the article, he talks about the hard work put in by his sister, Sharlee, who was straight out of college and who chose to also coach a group the children involved in the project.

After I ordered food for the team, I had to call up Sharlee. Before she could say anything, I told her all about the game.

Scoring our first run. Avoiding the mercy rule. Celebrating on the field. The McDonald’s party.

“See what happens when I coach?” I boasted.

(There’s nothing like one-upping your younger sister.)

Jeter is understandably proud of the accomplishments of both Turn 2 and Jeter's Leaders. And he's very proud of his sister. It's a good read.
