For a Hall of Fame-bound star who authored so many of the most famous moments in recent baseball history, who shined so bright under an October spotlight, Derek Jeter also was defined by his everyday excellence throughout the summer.

His steady hands at shortstop. The feisty at-bat to spark a rally with an opposite-field single. The multimillion dollar icon who wouldn’t hesitate to bunt.

And then, of course, there were the highlights nobody will forget.

There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.
