02/12: Derek Jeter to Retire Following the 2014 Season

Posted by: Patrick
This is not Mariano Rivera related, but we would be remiss if we did not mention that Derek Jeter has announced that 2014 will be his final season. He posted a letter on his Facebook page explaining the decision.

When I reflected on Mariano Rivera's retirement, I mentioned that Derek Jeter was always my favorite player. I've always joked that when Jeter retired, that would be the end of my childhood.

What a tremendous career, what a tremendous example that he, like Mr. Rivera, set for others to follow. Congratulations Mr. Jeter and may you have a great, successful 2014 season.
