Derek Jeter Is 100 Percent Sure He Will Not Return to Baseball

Derek Jeter and his girlfriend Hannah Davis step out of their home separately on Tuesday afternoon (September 30) in New York City.

The 40-year-old baseball player just taped an interview for The Today Show to talk about his career and the future after retiring. He says he is “100 percent sure” he won’t return to playing baseball.

“You know, it’s funny, because someone had mentioned to me I went from an old man in baseball to a young man in life,” Derek said. “And I liked how that sounded. So I consider myself young again.”

He also opened up about almost losing it during his final game at Yankees Stadium last week.

“When we got into about the eighth inning and you know, the fans started chanting, ‘Thank you’ – that’s when I almost lost it on the field. And to be honest with you, if the game would have finished 5-2, like we all thought it was going to finish, then I – there’s no telling what would have happened,” Derek said. “But my emotions just immediately changed, because they tied the game and then now it’s, “You got to go and hit.” And I’m (like), ‘Aw, I can’t believe I got to go out and try to do this again.’ So, everything changed from being sad to being excited. And you know, once I was excited, then I kept it together.”
