DEREK JETER: H.S. TO NAME BALL FIELD AFTER HIM
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -- Derek Jeter's high school is in the process of naming its baseball field after the New York Yankees' star. The school district's board recently approved a committee's recommendation that Kalamazoo Central's field be named Derek Jeter Field. A school spokesman says there are still some logistical steps that need to be taken before all this becomes final. Jeter graduated from the school in 1992. He is already a member of the school's athletic hall of fame.
