"The Life You Imagine," by Derek Jeter with Jack Curry, came out all the way back in 2000. So much has happened professionaly to Jeter in the interim.

So consider this one a cool time capsule. Jeter's only first-person version of his life, to this point. With some surprisingly sharp jabs at Chad Curtis, of all people, for the colorful outfielder's public challenge of Jeter back in 1999. 

I stumbled upon an extra paperback copy, so now I'll give it to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to this question:

Name the pitcher who surrendered Jeter's first career postseason hit.

Here are the contest rules.

--UPDATE, 3:27 p.m.: We have a winner! Craig knew that John Burkett of Texas surrendered Jeter's first career postseason hit, in the ninth inning of 1996 ALCS Game 1.
