Derek Jeter said he had hoped to fly under the radar, but of course, that wasn't possible. Not after he announced on Facebook that this would be his last season playing shortstop for the Yankees. So hundreds of reporters, photographers and camera crews descended on George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday.
The Yankees have another high-profile retirement party to plan. Shortstop Derek Jeter, one of the most iconic players in the franchise's rich history, has announced via his Facebook page that the 2014 season "will be [his] last year playing professional baseball."
Yankees captain Derek Jeter dug in for his first on-field batting-practice session of the year on Monday, according to The Associated Press.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter returned the field on Monday for the first time since missing all but 17 games in 2013, hitting off a tee and taking ground balls at the Yankees' Minor League complex in Tampa, Fla.
Derek Jeter said Thursday night he has been strengthening his body and is "100 percent" sure he will return to his everyday shortstop role with the Yankees in 2014, adding that he understands the club's need to seek insurance at the position but called it "my job."
Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said that while there are concerns about Derek Jeter's ability to reclaim the shortstop position, the club believes that the captain can return to his pre-injury form.
The Yankees announced Friday they have re-signed shortstop Derek Jeter to a one-year, $12 million contract for the 2014 season.
In many ways, this already feels like an abnormal offseason for Derek Jeter, as we have become accustomed to watching the Yankees captain spend his Octobers in uniform on the game's biggest stages.
As Mariano Rivera counts down the last six regular-season games of his career and Andy Pettitte also prepares to head home, Yankees captain Derek Jeter said that all of these extended ovations and celebrations have made it sink in that the "Core Four" is about to be whittled down to just one.
Derek Jeter, who has been limited to just 17 games this season due to left ankle issues, is headed back to the 15-day disabled list and is done for the year.
Since its launch in 1996, the Turn 2 Foundation has awarded more than $19 million in grants.
