Default Jeter Called Mother Of Slain Newtown Teacher

Derek Jeter of New York Yankees called mother of Newtown teacher Victoria Soto - ESPN New York


I honestly don't know how anyone can dislike Jeter, regardless of how much you hate the Yankees. Amazing man.

I don't feel as if many Yankee haters do. You gotta respect his talent and is by far one of the classiest guys to play the game

I hate the Yankees but have never had anything against Jeter. I'm not actually sure I've known anyone that disliked Jeter either. That was an awesome thing for him to do.

I gotta say that I despise the Yanks, but Jeter is class all the way. I have nothing but the upmost respect for the guy. I put him in the same category as Ripken.

So, regardless of how classy a person is, you will still hate them just because of what team they're on? Come on.

Why and how did the media need to even report this?

How did they find out?

If he really was a good guy, the only person who needed to know was the mother.

I'm not talking about him as a man, but as him as a ballplayer, I hate the guy on the field Derek Jeter because he is a Yankee, not the Derek Jeter off the field.

The family released the news that he had called. The yankees nor Jeter said one word about it.

Her sister tweeted about it.

Know the information before you post stupid stuff.

it's course correction...jeter is TOO popular, he gets overrated on talent simply because he is so popular, hence the backlash...but make no mistake about it, he is great and he IS a class act, but he's not half as good as people make him out to be (which is darn near a deity)

And who in the world is following his sister's tweets? You?

Gee, you guys are so gullible.

Of course his agent isn't going to call espn and tell them to report this story.



I told you his PR guy is good.

OMG, Derek Jeter took time out of his busy schedule to call a parent in mourning. Wait a second, it's the off season.

I guess what I don't understand is why does it matter if Jeter called her? It doesn't change the fact that her daughter is gone, nor are his words any more or less powerful than someone like you or me. Are we suggesting that he is an even better person because he called a complete stranger during a time of mourning? I can't say I respect the guy more because he said this.

Are you hearing any stories about any other baseball players doing what Jeter did? No.

Most people in this world probably forget about the tragedy by the next day. Jeter obviously heard about the shooting, looked more into it, read about it, heard about the teacher's amazing sacrifice and then called her, to at least ease the mom's suffering a little bit, and letting the mom know that the world knows about her daughter's amazing sacrifice and we will always appreciate what she did for those kids.

You must not be a fan of Jeter. Because, this made me love him even more. Because, he IS a classy man.

You're so stupid. Don't you know when these things happen that news people and other people follow their relatives for information? I'm sure her followers number jumped about 500.

I guess some people will always find the bad in a good action.

It's you that's sickening, not Cruz or Jeter.
