Are you serious? I can agree that alot of people do overrate Jeter, but I find this statement to be ridiculous. He was running at full speed, had his eyes straight up trying to find the ball, and the foul area is miniscule down the left field line. It is humanly impossible to stop before you get to the wall if you are going at the speed he was. And if you DO stop, your legs are going to hit the wall and you're going to flip over head-first, a very dangerous maneouver.
