You could say it’s the end of an era.
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says he will retire after this season. Jeter posted a long letter on his Facebook account Wednesday saying that 2014 will be his last year of playing professional baseball.
The 39-year-old Yankees captain missed much of last season because of injuries. While it was no secret the team captain was getting close to the end of his brilliant career, his announcement caught many by surprise.
