Derek Jeter Announces Retirement from Baseball After 2014

Derek Jeter took to his Facebook to announce his retirement from baseball and the New York Yankees after the 2014 season.

“I know they say that when you dream you eventually wake up,” the 39-year-old star wrote on his Facebook. “Well, for some reason, I’ve never had to wake up. Not just because of my time as a New York Yankee but also because I am living my dream every single day.”

“So really it was months ago when I realized that this season would likely be my last,” Derek continued. “As I came to this conclusion and shared it with my friends and family, they all told me to hold off saying anything until I was absolutely 100% sure.”

“I will remember it all: the cheers, the boos, every win, all the plane trips, the bus rides, the clubhouses, the walks through the tunnel and every drive to and from the Bronx,” Derek added.

FYI: Derek has played professional baseball for 19 seasons.
