A Series of Stars

The "House That Ruth Built," otherwise known as Yankee Stadium, is home to a brilliant history of baseball greatness where a little over one hundred years have created a dynasty of winning that has produced 26 World Series titles. The 2000 "Subway Series" gave the Yankees their 26th World Championship with a victory over their arch-rival New York Mets. From past to present, the New York Yankees have built a rich legacy of outstanding all-star players and winning teams. America's Sports Artist, Rick Rush, has captured and recorded this unprecedented dynasty of America's favorite pastime.

Across the top of the painting is the facade of Yankee Stadium that conjures up memories of some of the greatest games and players of American baseball history. Also, in the background symbolizing the strong Yankee heritage are all-star players Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Bill Dickey and Mickey Mantle, a line-up from the New York Yankee's series of stars. The infield wall of Yankee Stadium records the Yankee's unbelievable 26-time World Series Championships, as well as the red, white and blue banners depicting the series celebration. The banners represent the gala event and integral part the World Series plays in sports in America. Capturing the center stage in the 2000 World Series was Yankee shortstop and World Series MVP, Derek Jeter. At the time of the series, Jeter had won four World Series over the previous five years, while winning three in a row during 1998, 1999 and 2000.

Jeter is purely the all-around, gifted, all-star baseball player. He is fast and smart as a base runner, strong and powerful with the bat and extraordinary with his glove on defense. With unusual ease, Jeter can complete plays that other infielders can't touch. He is known for making leaping catches and powerful relays to first base without ever planting his feet on the ground. In A Series of Stars, Jeter is shown making one of his patented throws to first base while vaulting Mike Piazza, the all-star catcher for the Mets.

Jeter is the most recent Yankee player in New York's crown of excellence to establish himself as a true World Series MVP sensation. Included in the Yankees list of great players, Derek Jeter helped the Yankees to win the 2000 World Series and to carrv on A Series of Stars.
