Derek Jeter announced earlier this afternoon that the 2014 baseball season will indeed be his last. He is without a doubt not only one of the best short stops in Yankees history, but in baseball history as a whole. He will definitely not only be enjoying his last season of professional baseball, but Derek will putting an end to a legendary career.

In a statement to the Yankees from Derek Jeter, he writes:

Last year was a tough one for me. As I suffered through a bunch of injuries, I realized that some of the things that always came easily to me and were always fun had started to become a struggle. The one thing I always said to myself was that when baseball started to feel more like a job, then it would be time to move forward

For the past seventeen years or so, Derek Jeter has come through and helped the Yankees go home with five world series championships. He has over 3,000 hits as the 2014 season begins and has gone home with the Rookie of the Year award back in 1996..remember?

The last game for the 39 year old for this season will be on September 28th at Fenway Park against the Red Sox..ironic, huh?

Derek Jeter has ALWAYS been a class act and I wish him the best throughout this final season and after the season…This is all coming from me, a Mets fan.
