Derek Jeter, everyone’s favorite New York Yankee, is retiring after next season. “I will remember it all: the cheers, the boos, every win, every loss, all the plane trips, the bus rides, the clubhouses, the walks through the tunnel and every drive to and from the Bronx,” wrote Jeter, in a heartfelt note on Facebook. “I have achieved almost every personal and professional goal I have set. I have gotten the very most out of my life playing baseball, and I have absolutely no regrets.”
Jeter also thanked George Steinbrenner, the Steinbrenner family, the Yankee organization, his family and fans. Now the city’s newspapers are thanking him back. The Post, the Daily News, the Staten Island Advance and more dedicated all or parts of their covers to the Yankee captain.
The Jeter farewell tour has already started. So brace yourself, grab some tissues and enjoy the ride. While it lasts.
