What do Derek Jeter and Pope Francis have in common? They're both in the top 50 greatest leaders in the world, according to this "Forbes" magazine list.

Jeter is 11th on the list and is described as "the type of role-model player that even a Red Sox fan must grudgingly respect."

Warren Buffett, who famously offered $1 billion to anybody with a perfect NCAA tournament bracket, comes in at No. 4. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, Duke University basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and South Carolina women's basketball coach Dawn Staley are all tied for 20th on the list.
