NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. – Happy birthday to North Arlington’s Derek Jeter!

Jeter, a former professional baseball player with the New York Yankees, turns 43 Monday.

The shortstop was born June 26, 1974, in Pequannock Township. He played 20 seasons for the Yankees. A five-time World Series champion, Jeter is regarded as a central figure of the Yankees' success of the late 1990s and early 2000s for his hitting, base running, fielding and leadership.

His accolades include 14 All-Star selections, five Gold Glove Awards, five Silver Slugger Awards, two Hank Aaron Awards and a Roberto Clemente Award. Jeter became the 28th player to reach 3,000 hits and finished his career sixth all-time in career hits and with the most hits by a shortstop.

He retired after the 2014 season. In 2015, Jeter was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.
