From his rookie season in 1996 through 2002, Jeter averaged 154 games per season and became the unquestioned leader of the Bronx Bombers. But Jeter dislocated his left shoulder on the 2003 season's very first day. Jeter was trying to take an extra bag on a slow ground ball by Jason Giambi, but the star shortstop collided with Blue Jays catcher Ken Huckaby at third base. Jeter went on the disabled list for six weeks, missing 36 games.
