Derek Jeter, the captain and starting shortstop for the New York Yankees, fractured his ankle in the 12th inning of the American League Championship Series opener this evening and will miss the remainder of the postseason.

Which, at this rate, will last approximately three more games for the Yankees.

Sportsman of the Year
