Captain Clutch Derek Jeter Powering Yankee Playoff Hopes, Ticket Run

Share Article

New York Yankee captain Derek Jeter has stepped up to the plate… finally. After a dismal 2011 season, most observers thought Jeter was toast, but it appears Captain Clutch aims to add another World Series ring to his finger. Along the way, he’s helped spark another big ticket run for the New York Yankees, said Felina Martinez at, but cheap New York Yankees tickets are still available.

With October fast approaching, Derek Jeter has come alive. That’s good news for the New York Yankees, whose hopes are also now rejuvenated for yet another World Series run. With just over a dozen games left in the season, the Yankees are fighting for a playoff berth. And according to Felina Martinez of, the fans are loving it. Ticket sales are headed out of the park.

“On average, 43,874 fans have attended each home game in the 2012 season, down from 45,107 last year,” said Martinez. “The Yankees best attendance figures were in the 2008 season, with an average home game high of 53,070. While most of the upcoming games are officially sold out, we still have hundreds of cheap New York Yankees tickets now available at exclusive discounts on our site. Fans can save as much as $150 at checkout.”

“To access the exclusive discounts on the cheap New York Yankees tickets we now have available, customers can go to and click on the New York Yankees – then select their tickets and type in “VOC2012” in the discount code box at checkout,” said Martinez.

The Yankees have only missed the post season once in the last 17 years. They already have 27 World Series titles and 40 American League Pennants, both Major League Baseball records by a wide margin. This year, the first reason to believe they can do it yet again is their team captain, Derek Jeter. The shortstop has been playing incredibly well again lately, and defying father time in the process. He’s hitting a consistent.323 — good enough for third in the American League. Jeter also has 15 homers up to this point, just one short of his 2010 and 2011 seasons combined.

Fans are also looking for help from Alex Rodriguez, back from the DL. In his last seven games, Rodriguez has seven hits in 24 at-bats, bringing his average to .279. He's also given the Yankees one home run and three RBI, while also scoring six runs. If the Yankees should make it into the post season, Rodriguez’s stats suggest he's a fair option for the big hit—.277 batting average, 13 HR, 41 RBI and an OBP of .386 in 16 series – even though he’s also failed miserably come crunch time. Then there’s Teixeira who is expected to be back in the lineup as early as next Friday. He could also push the New York Yankees further into contention, along with Curtis Granderson and Russell Martin, who seem to be coming out of a recent slump. The Grandy Man is hitting .318 in the last seven days; he's got five home runs and 11 RBI.

Bottom line, the biggest factor in the Yankees advancing deep in the playoffs will be their pitching. Ivan Nova, coming off of a shoulder injury, pitched beautifully against division rival the Tampa Bay Rays. Hiroki Kuroda, with a 14-10 record, is another key. Also back in the line-up is Andy Pettitte, a hurler with hot post season stats including 263 postseason innings in 13 years and 30 series. Pettitte’s big stat is his wins over that time: 19, the record for most postseason wins.
And finally, the biggest reason for fans’ offseason hopes – their team is, afterall, the New York Yankees: the winning-est team in baseball.
