Jeter Speaks Out on Retirement

After  shocking the baseball world with last week's revelation that 2014 would 
be  his last year  in the majors, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter spoke 
publicly  for the  first  time about  the  matter. Jeter  met  with the  media 
Wednesday at George M. Steinbrenner Field to discuss his decision to retire at 
the  conclusion of  the upcoming  campaign. The  Yankees captain  unveiled his 
plans  a week  ago via a Facebook  post. He had no prepared statement and just 
took  questions  at the  press conference,  saying, "I  said everything that I 
wanted  to  say in my  message." Jeter  battled through an injury-plagued 2013 
season,  appearing in only  17 games because of a myriad of problems, and said 
his  decision had "nothing to do with how I feel physically" and declared that 
he feels great. The 13-time All-Star, who turns 40 in June, just felt the time 
was right.
