On June 1, 1992, the New York Yankees drafted Derek Jeter in the MLB draft. 26 years later, the organization reveals his scouting report.

Derek Jeter to any other team just seems silly. No, this kid was born to play in the majors for the New York Yankees.

Apparently, the Yankees scouts thought so too as their scouting reports raved about their shortstop back in 1992.

Thankfully, the YES Network Twitter let us take a gander at this precious piece of paper to see what the scouts really thought of Jeter.

This was right out of high school. And the scouts were spot-on when it came to their original analysis of the shortstop. How impressive that 26 years later, they were exactly correct.

Perhaps the most exciting thing that is written on here is “This guy is special.” Indeed he was. Jeter turned out to be a 14-time All-Star and a five-time World Series champion with clutch moments littered throughout his 20-year career in the Bronx.

Jeter, now a co-owner of the Miami Marlins, gave the Bronx all he had and he was just what they had hoped for and more. While he did struggle early on during his tenure with the Yankees organization, he is a prime example of what happens when you work hard.

This is definitely a treat to see. So does that mean that at some point down the line, we’ll get to see the scouting reports of current superstars like Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez and some other prolific Yankees studs from the past, like Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada.

Wouldn’t that be something to see?

It just goes to show how strong the scouting is within the Yankees organization, which is currently showcasing that scouting talent with the Baby Bombers making waves in the Bronx.

Just seeing this makes me trust the scouting reports even more.
