We all know that Derek Jeter is an excellent leader both on and off of the baseball field. But is he one of the best leaders in the world?
Yes, according to Fortune. They just put together a list of the the world's 50 greatest leaders. And according to them, Jeter isn't better than Warren Buffett, Bill Clinton, or—welp—The Pope when it comes to leading. But he is better than Michael Bloomberg, Tim Cook, and Wynton Marsalis. Fortune's reasoning is simple: "In a steroid-tainted, reality-TV era, Jeter, the son of two Army veterans, continues to stand out because of his old-school approach: Never offer excuses or give less than maximum effort."
We're all for giving props to a guy who has always done things the right way on the baseball diamond. But does he really deserve to be in the top 15 in the world?
For those wondering which other sports figures cracked Fortune's top 50, Mike Krzyzewski, Gregg Popovich, and Dawn Staley all landed in the top 20. Check out the entire list here.
