Derek Jeter paid tribute to fellow Yankees legend Yogi Berra on Tuesday in a piece published on The Players' Tribune. Berra passed away on Sept. 22, the 69th anniversary of his Yankees debut, and a funeral service was held Tuesday. He was 90.
Yogi Berra shook hands with Babe Ruth, helped bridge the gap between Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle and won more World Series rings than all of them. That made him a treasured link to the Yankees' past for Derek Jeter, who considered himself something of a student of franchise history.
During his 20-year career with the Yankees, Derek Jeter was a 14-time All-Star, five-time World Series champion, Rookie of the Year and World Series MVP.
Leading up to his retirement last season, Derek Jeter consistently said what he was looking forward to was enjoying a summer without a schedule, offered the flexibility to see what life would be like away from the ballpark after 20 years in the Majors.
Former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is staying busy with his The Players' Tribune venture and other charity work, but he said Wednesday night on SiriusXM radio that he doesn't miss the game "at all."
CC Sabathia's digs have been upgraded to some of the most prized real estate in the Yankees' clubhouse, as the left-hander is now stashing his belongings in a locker formerly used by captain Derek Jeter.
Derek Jeter and Hideki Matsui reunited on the field on Saturday, going to bat in Tokyo to raise funds for children affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Derek Jeter proudly served 12 seasons while holding the title of Yankees captain, and general manager Brian Cashman believes that he should be the last in franchise history.
As the Yankees went through their drills Thursday, Joe Girardi wandered around the lip of the outfield grass, exchanging pleasantries with the infielders. When he reached the shortstop position, he had to remember why Derek Jeter was absent.
The captain won't be tossing this year's ceremonial first pitch. Derek Jeter plans to be far away from the Bronx when the Yankees begin the regular season against the Blue Jays on April 6. "I think actually I'll be out of the country," Jeter told SiriusXM on Saturday, when asked where he'd be for the Yanks' opener.
