Derek Jeter has worked out on a baseball field for the first time since breaking his left ankle last October.

PRIDE OF THE YANKEES

Which pinstripe greats made the list of the best Bronx Bombers ever?

The 38-year-old New York Yankees captain fielder 55 grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt at shortstop Monday at the team's minor league complex. He also hit in a batting cage.

''Everything went well,'' Jeter says.

The 13-time All-Star expects to start in New York's opener against Boston on April 1. This is the time of year Jeter usually starts his onfield pre-spring training routine.

Jeter broke the ankle lunging for a grounder in the AL championship series opener against Detroit on Oct. 13. He had surgery a week later, and the Yankees said recovery time would be four to five months.

Jeter has been walking on an underwater treadmill at the team's facility since early January.
