Hey baseball fans!
Derek Jeter was dubbed "Mr. November" after his dramatic, walk-off, World Series-tying home run in a decisive Game Four of the 2001 World Series because that was the first time any MLB game had been played in November. Since that game, Jeter has played in six additional November baseball games, which came during the 2001 and 2009 Fall Classics. The question is, however, does he really deserve the nickname "Mr. November?" How were his numbers while batting in the eleventh month of the year? Let's find out.
Jeter had 26 at-bats during the month of November and collected nine hits, which equates to a solid .346 batting average. Most of his hits came in the 2009 World Series, however, like his 2-for-4 and 3-for-5 days at the plate in Games Four and Six against the Phillies. He struggled in November 2001, averaging a strikeout a game, but he averaged one run scored per game in 2009. In total, in seven games during the month of topaz, Jeter collected 1 homer, 2 RBI, 5 strikeouts, 4 runs, and a walk. Overall, I think I'd have to say that he deserves the nickname.
