Derek Jeter's female conquests–—his many, many female conquests—are well-known. He's pretty tight-lipped about them though, so it's not known what exactly does he look for in the opposite sex. A wild guess at what he's not looking for: Jerks.

The shortstop encountered one during a Friday game. Jeter tried to hand a kid a baseball when a fan tried to snatch it. The kid has to learn the world is a cruel, cruel place at some point, but Jeter said, "Not today, kid. Not today." As his eyes glistened (you honestly can't tell since you're staring at his neck with this camera angle, but you'd like to think so), he held the ball outside the fan's reach to give the kid the present. Can't The Captain stay a Yankee forever?
