Derek Jeter Retirement: Yankees Captain To Retire After 2014 MLB Season, Capping Off Rare And Iconic Career

Derek Jeter Retirement: Yankees Captain To Retire After 2014 MLB Season, Capping Off Rare And Iconic Career

Hyped by on February 13, 2014 Website: www.bostonsuperblog.com

New York Yankees Captain Derek Jeter has announced that the 2014 MLB season will be his last, deciding that he will retire after playing 19 years with one team. We all know how rare that is in today’s world of professional sports, but Jeter was rare in almost every meaning of the word.

In a game where often the biggest headlines dealt with performance enhancing drugs and cheating, Jeter was always a bright spot. When players were being charged with crimes or perjury or just being jerks, Jeter kept his nose clean. When many players were accused of dogging it or throwing in the towel, Jeter continued to hustle on every play. When so many players took the money and ran off to a team that had no chance at competing, yet offered the biggest contract, Jeter remained loyal to an organization that remained loyal to him. And, when players were seeing their names lumped in with other PED users and cheaters and liars, Jeter just kept helping the Yankees win and prove that you can still play this great game the way it was intended.
