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.

Derek Jeter Covers 'GQ' April 2011

Derek Jeter holds onto a baseball bat on the cover of GQ‘s April issue, on newsstands March 22.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Yankees shortstop had to share with the mag:

On the secret to his success: “My parents always told me, ‘There’s always going to be someone that’s better.’ But there’s no reason why someone should outwork you. That’s just an excuse.”

On his string of high-profile relationships (he’s currently dating actress Minka Kelly): “I understand the interest. I do I understand people want to know. I get that. And I think in terms of your career, your occupation, they can know anything they want. [But] some things should be kept private.”

On staying out of the tabloids: “Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I didn’t go out and have fun. But there’s been a lot of players that come to New York and get caught up in the lifestyle, and before you know it, they’re sent away to another team because it affected their performance. My number one priority was on the field. I’ve had fun. It’s not like I’ve never gone out; I’ve done a lot of things. But I’ve always kept sight of my number one priority.”
