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.
Former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who has said in the past that he'd someday like to own a baseball team, reiterated that sentiment this weekend when he told Bloomberg TV that "baseball is what I know" and also that it's unlikely he'd foray into ownership outside of baseball.
The iconic image from Derek Jeter's last game in the Bronx was snapped as the winning run crossed home plate. Rounding first base on a sharp single to right field, Jeter gleefully leapt in the air and fired both fists high above his head -- one final moment of triumph in pinstripes in a career that was defined by it.
Before we turn the calendar ahead to the new year, this is a good time to take a look back at the top five Yankees storylines of 2014 -- what went right, what went wrong, and what might be around the corner.
Derek Jeter treated 485 children to a screening of the movie "Annie" and then surprised them with holiday gift bags Monday night at an Upper West Side theater in Manhattan. Included in the bags was a refrigerator magnet that listed "Derek Jeter's 10 Life Lessons for Achieving Your Dreams."
No one who was in the Bronx on the evening of Sept. 25 will ever forget Derek Jeter's final Yankee Stadium at-bat, and the captain's farewell moment in pinstripes has been fittingly recognized in the 2014 Greatest In Baseball Yearly (GIBBY) Award voting.
Derek Jeter's final tour, Masahiro Tanaka's stellar arrival and Dellin Betances' breakout campaign are among the memorable Yankees moments of this past season that have been selected to be nominated for MLB.com's Greatest in Baseball Yearly (GIBBY) Awards.
