Jeter says this will be his last year playing baseball
One of the great ambassadors of the game will be calling it a career after this MLB season which will be his 20th. Which surely won't bring the Boston Red Sox to tears, but for Broadway it's a different story. After meeting with his close family and friends Derek Jeter is 100% sure that 2014 will be his last season suiting up for the New York Yankees.
Jeter's 3,316 hits are the 10th most among the game's all-time career leaders, and his 1,876 runs rank second among active players and 13th all-time, and is 43 shy of Alex Rodriguez for 10th place. Jeter will be sure to have earned himself a place in Cooperstown with the likes of Babe Ruth, and Reggie Jackson just to name a couple Yankee greats.
