He was a "young colt" with a "perfect SS body" and was a "top student" who planned to study medicine at the University of Michigan, too. "This guy is special," one big league scout even wrote. But, could anyone back then have projected that Derek Jeter the high schooler would someday become Derek Jeter the future Hall of Famer? Now 40, Jeter is set to retire after this season. A five-time World Series champion and sixth on the career hits list, he spent two decades as the shortstop for the New York Yankees. Five big league teams bypassed Jeter in baseball's amateur draft in 1992 before New York selected him with the No. 6 pick. A year earlier, Yankees scout Dick Grouch had first spotted Jeter after his junior year. "It was one of those serendipitous events," Grouch recalled last week. "I was going to cover a tournament on the other side of the state, and I knew they were having this talent identification camp at Mount Morris High School, so I stopped just to get a glance as to what was transpiring." This time, there was indeed something worth seeing. "About 5 or 10 minutes in, he was taking groundballs at the time, and then he did things that caught my eye," Grouch said. With the short high school season, Jeter didn't play many games during the school year, so Grouch watched him with the Kalamazoo Maroons summer league team. And then Jeter injured an ankle early in his senior season, limiting his playing time. But Jeter already had caught the attention of scouts for many teams, according to reports that later went to baseball's Hall of Fame. Cincinnati scout Gene Bennett wrote in April 1992 that Jeter aimed to study medicine at Michigan, adding he "has leadership ability with good makeup" and possessed "skills similar to (Barry) Larkin as high school player." Larkin, who played college ball at Michigan, became a Hall of Fame shortstop with the Reds. The California Angels' Jon Niederer noticed Jeter was "somewhat thin-chested and 'pointy shouldered,"' saying he had a "good face - very young looking" and was a "top student from a high class family." Niederer said Jeter had "all the tools to play the game at a high level." He took note of his "very quick hands and feet - so quick they can get him set up to make a play before the ball arrives and he looks out of synch." Ed Santa of the Colorado Rockies said Jeter had a "perfect SS body" and projected him to have All-Star potential. "You get excited just watching him warm up," he wrote in May 1992. Dave Littlefield, who scouted Jeter for the Montreal Expos and went on to become Pittsburgh's general manager, wrote a report that praised Jeter's body type and bode well for future success. "Hi butt, longish arms & legs, leanish torso," he said. Among his other remarks was the "young colt" description. "I think I got most of that right," said Littlefield, who now scouts for the Chicago Cubs. "I wish in retrospect we had picked him." Jeter says he never really focused on scouts and is pretty sure they first showed up to scout another player on his summer team. Grouch observed Jeter for about a year but tried not to interact with him. "He always stayed away. He kept his distance," Jeter said. Grouch had a reason for his behavior. "I did not want him to know that I was at the ballpark," he said. "I sat in my car. I was in the bushes. I was in the woods. I didn't want him to play for me, because I wanted to see how he handled failure. And every game that he played was the same." As the draft approached, Yankees' director of scouting Bill Livesey made the trip to Michigan to watch him play. But the entire organization avoided contact. Five other teams were ahead of New York. "We pretty much zeroed in on him, but none of us wanted to get our hopes up," Livesey said. And when Yankees executives met on the day before the draft, there was one last internal hurdle to overcome - and it was a big one. "Mr. Steinbrenner was not real high on taking high school kids, simply because they were too long from the big leagues. So we had to convince him," Livesey said, referring to late owner George Steinbrenner, who was suspended from baseball at the time. "He asked me how long it was going to take for him to be in the big leagues," Livesey said. "It was a little bit of the fib: I told him four years." The five teams ahead of the Yankees didn't take Jeter. Not Houston, not Cleveland, not Montreal, not Baltimore, not Cincinnati. When the Yankees were up, Jeter was there for the picking. Jeter signed for a $700,000 bonus (he would make $266 million from the Yankees), reached the major leagues for the first time in 1995 and quickly blossomed. Grouch says he had a feeling. "He's going to be able to play in the toughest venue in all of athletics, and that's Yankee Stadium," he said. "And this guy, he was going to capture this entire city. He was going to capture New York." http://thedove.us/sports/2014/09/19/retiring-yankees-star-lived-his-potential#comments Sports Fri, 19 Sep 2014 19:37:03 +0000 Jim McCoy 8892 at http://thedove.us Friday Sports Minute: MLB Talks Domestic Violence, Baseball Previews, NFL http://thedove.us/sports/2014/09/19/friday-sports-minute-mlb-talks-domestic-violence-baseball-previews-nfl UNDATED (AP) - Representatives of Major League Baseball and the players' union are opening talks about establishing new policies and punishments for domestic violence. The recent spate of high-profile domestic violence cases involving Ray Rice and other NFL players prompted the discussions. PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates, whose magic number to reach the baseball playoffs is seven, open a three-game series tonight at home against the Milwaukee Brewers, who are 3 1/2 games behind the Pirates for the second NL wild-card berth. Jeff Locke takes a 7-5 record to the mound for the Pirates, who've won four in a row after finishing their three-game sweep of Boston with a 3-2 victory last night. CHICAGO (AP) - L.A. Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu is expected to begin a throwing program in the next couple days and thinks he will be able to return this year. After being removed from his start last Friday at San Francisco after just one inning due to shoulder inflammation, the left-hander says he is feeling better after a cortisone shot on Monday. He's hoping to return soon, but he is not sure when. ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles after being "very limited" in practice today. Jackson is recovering from a sprained left shoulder and didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. He's been looking forward to facing the Eagles, who cut him in March, and has said he will play if it's up to him. PARIS (AP) - The Davis Cup final between France and Roger Federer's Switzerland will be held at the 27,000-capacity Pierre Mauroy stadium in the northern French city of Lille. Inaugurated in 2012, the stadium has a retractable roof which will be closed throughout the Nov. 21-23 final. http://thedove.us/sports/2014/09/19/friday-sports-minute-mlb-talks-domestic-violence-baseball-previews-nfl#comments Sports Fri, 19 Sep 2014 19:33:40 +0000 Jim McCoy 8891 at http://thedove.us Some Onion Mountain Fire Evacuation Notices Lifted http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/some-onion-mountain-fire-evacuation-notices-lifted <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-story"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://thedove.us/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://thedove.us/sites/default/files/images/laying down retardant line_5.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=25202">laying down retardant line.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> Riverbanks and Limpy Creek Roads in Josephine County have had their Level One evacuation notices lifted, according to the Oregon Interagency Management Team.” They report good progress on the 4-thousand acre Onion Mountain Fire, which is now 20-percent contained. Poor visibility hampered aircraft use. Helicopters and tankers should be usable today. Greater fire activity was expected for today as warmer, windier conditions were forecast to return. Level One notices remain in effect for Pickett Creek, Shan Creek, Taylor Creek and Galice Creek. http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/some-onion-mountain-fire-evacuation-notices-lifted#comments News Onion Mountain Fire Fri, 19 Sep 2014 19:27:43 +0000 Jim McCoy 8890 at http://thedove.us Gang Member Returns To Jail http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/gang-member-returns-jail <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-story"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://thedove.us/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://thedove.us/sites/default/files/images/gonzalez juan 2.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=26988">gonzalez juan 2.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> A known member of the Norteno Gang who escaped from the MacLaren Youth Correctional program is back behind bars.

The News-Review (http://bit.ly/1u73sd1 ) reports that investigators recognized 27-year-old John Joseph Flannigan, who lived nearby, from a security video showing him attacking Lori Lynn Rothrock at the Fast Stop Market & Deli early Tuesday. He is being held without bail after being arraigned on a charge of murder. In an affidavit, police say the video shows Flannigan walk behind the counter and repeatedly stab the 38-year-old mother of four, then beat her in the head with a mallet. Police say they arrested Flannigan at his home, where they found a bloody mallet hidden in his bed, and a knife in another room. http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/video-shows-attack-roseburg-store-clerk#comments News John Joseph Flannigan Lori Lynn Rothrock Fri, 19 Sep 2014 19:14:49 +0000 Jim McCoy 8888 at http://thedove.us Suspected Car Jacker Takes Wild Ride Onto Golf Course http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/suspected-car-jacker-takes-wild-ride-golf-course <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-story"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://thedove.us/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://thedove.us/sites/default/files/images/medford police-gfx copy_35.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=20299">medford police-gfx copy.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> A woman waiting in a car in the Winco parking lot Thursday for a friend doing some banking ended up in a carjacking. At around 11:55 a.m., 29-year old Stephen Wayne Fennell allegedly got in the car and threatened the victim with a gun. While Fennell reportedly drove erratically around the parking lot, he made threats against the woman anytime she reached for the door to escape. The 49-year old woman eventually escaped when he slowed down enough for her to be able to do so. She suffered no injuries, according to the Medford Police. The 2009 Hyundai Fennell was driving turned up at the Stewart Meadows golf course, where he was driving the vehicle across the grass. He crashed into a fence and deserted the car. Nearby Jefferson Elementary was placed on lockdown. 30 minutes later, the suspect emerged from some bushes on Kenyon Street and was arrested. Investigators later discovered that while Fennell was on the run, he broke into an Ivy Street house through an open window, changed his clothes, and stole a beer. He left when the resident returned home. Fennell was sweating profusely, and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. He is lodged in Jackson County Jail on $2,015,000 bail. Fennell faces kidnapping, robbery, burglary and criminal mischief charges, as well as unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/suspected-car-jacker-takes-wild-ride-golf-course#comments News carjacking Stephen Wayne Fennell Fri, 19 Sep 2014 19:11:59 +0000 Jim McCoy 8887 at http://thedove.us News - Weed Fire Help http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/news-weed-fire-help Support for those in the Weed fire has been overwhelming so much that donations are being put on hold because of a lack of storage. <div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-video-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video emvideo-youtube"><iframe id="media-youtube-html5-2" title="YouTube video player" class="media-youtube-html5" type="text/html" width="630" height="366" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/YACb1lhNll0?autoplay=0&rel=0&hd=1" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/news-weed-fire-help#comments News Fri, 19 Sep 2014 18:16:20 +0000 admin 8886 at http://thedove.us News - Scottish Vote http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/news-scottish-vote Scottish Voters have decided to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core.<div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-video-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video emvideo-youtube"><iframe id="media-youtube-html5-3" title="YouTube video player" class="media-youtube-html5" type="text/html" width="630" height="366" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5DYDPnMGYOI?autoplay=0&rel=0&hd=1" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> http://thedove.us/news/2014/09/19/news-scottish-vote#comments News Fri, 19 Sep 2014 18:14:07 +0000 admin 8885 at http://thedove.us
