CLEVELAND -- As a kid growing up in the Dominican Republic, Manny Acta was a Red Sox fan, not an Indians fan.
"I was Carlton Fisk over Thurman [Munson]," Acta said Monday.
But as a major-league manager, Acta is very much a Derek Jeter fan.
"Has anybody represented our game in our era better than that guy?" Acta asked Monday, as Jeter resumed his pursuit of 3,000 hits with a game against Acta's Indians. "He's one of the few legends still playing. If Major League Baseball had a school for how to act, he and Tom Glavine and a few others should be teaching the classes.
"It would be great for him to get [3,000] at home, but if he gets six hits here and we win, that's fine."
