ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Derek Jeter looked at George Steinbrenner as a father figure, which in part meant that Steinbrenner could instill fear.
During his first year in the majors, a 21-year-old Jeter learned of The Boss' football mentality following a Yankees early-season victory. Not only did The Boss want to win every game, he wanted to win each one flawlessly.
Jeter was picked off on a line drive during the victory. Afterward, The Boss berated him.
