CHARLOTTE--New York Yankees star Derek Jeter had surgery in Charlotte on Saturday.
Dr. Robert Anderson operated on the shortstop to repair a broken ankle.
The 38-year-old team captain broke his ankle in the 12th inning of the American League championship series opener while trying to field a ground ball.
Team officials said Jeter will need four to five months to completely recover.
Dr. Anderson is a team physician for the Carolina Panthers and consults with a number of collegiate and professional teams.
