I've been watching Derek Jeter play since I was ten years old and today he announced he will retire after the 2014 season. So bummed. Jeter is the face of the MLB and of course the Captain of my favorite team the Yankees. I have no clue who will step into his shoes and it may take years until some one does. He is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of NY sports and my generations Joe DiMaggio or Mickey Mantle. 5 championships, 7 appearances, 9 ALCS appearances and he only missed the playoffs twice in his career! He may end up with 35 hundred hits as well. OH yeah he also made plays like this! I LOVE YOU JEETS!
