Sit Jeter, sit!

Derek Jeter is captain of the Yankees has five World Series rings, a super hot gf (Minka Kelly), and more pets named after him than anyone else in baseball.

New York City, you see, is home to 33 dogs actively registered under the name Jeter. Across the Hudson, at the Valley Animal Hospital in Clifton, N.J., there are seven clients who go by the name Jeter, and on a single mail route.

In Kalamazoo, Mich., where Jeter grew up, there are four dogs named for the hometown hero. (yes, cats too!)

There's even a dog hero named after the shortstop in Dayton, Ohio. Jeter, a Great Pyrenees, died in a fire in June 2009 after alerting his owner about a fire in the basement of their home.

So sweet!
