Yankees' Derek Jeter to Retire at End of 2014 Season
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says he will retire after this season. He made the announcement on his official Facebook page.
The 39-year-old said: "And the thing is, I could not be more sure. I know it in my heart. The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball."
A five-time World Series champion, Jeter is the Yankees' all-time leader in games played, hits, stolen bases and at bats. FoxNews.com reports that in 19 seasons, he notched 13 All-Star selections, five Gold Glove awards and became the 28th player to reach 3,000 hits.
