The New York captain turned 39 Wednesday as he kept up his rehab program for a broken left ankle, an injury originally sustained last Oct. 13 in the AL championship series opener.
A group of around 30 fans and autograph dealers held homemade signs wishing the shortstop a happy birthday, and they cheered when Jeter drove into the complex.
U.S. Coast Guard veteran Juan Rivero brought an oversized birthday card, calling Jeter “the greatest player of my generation.”
Jeter smiled and waved as he walked into the clubhouse.
