Captain Derek Jeter legged out a fifth-inning double on Monday afternoon, his left hand grasping the bag just ahead of the tag, and he could exhale with relief. He would score as part of a two-run rally, helping the Yankees post a 4-2 victory over the Orioles in the season's first game in the Bronx.
Derek Jeter logged career hits No. 3,319 and 3,320 on Sunday against the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre, passing Paul Molitor (3,319) to claim sole possession of eighth place on the all-time hits list.
The Astros on Wednesday picked up where they left off last season, honoring a legendary Yankee, this time Derek Jeter. The array of gifts screamed "Texas": pinstriped cowboy boots and a Stetson.
As Derek Jeter prepares for what will be his final Opening Day as an active player, the Yankees captain still vividly remembers the first time that he saw his name in the lineup for a season opener -- April 2, 1996, against the Indians in Cleveland.
There have been plenty of opportunities for Derek Jeter to test his surgically repaired left ankle this spring, and the Yankees shortstop had a particularly busy day at the office on Sunday. Jeter participated in five of the first nine outs that David Phelps recorded against the Rays. He also turned a double play during six innings in the field, finishing the afternoon 0-for-3 at the plate.
Derek Jeter said he had hoped to fly under the radar, but of course, that wasn't possible. Not after he announced on Facebook that this would be his last season playing shortstop for the Yankees. So hundreds of reporters, photographers and camera crews descended on George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday.
The Yankees have another high-profile retirement party to plan. Shortstop Derek Jeter, one of the most iconic players in the franchise's rich history, has announced via his Facebook page that the 2014 season "will be [his] last year playing professional baseball."
Yankees captain Derek Jeter dug in for his first on-field batting-practice session of the year on Monday, according to The Associated Press.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter returned the field on Monday for the first time since missing all but 17 games in 2013, hitting off a tee and taking ground balls at the Yankees' Minor League complex in Tampa, Fla.
Derek Jeter said Thursday night he has been strengthening his body and is "100 percent" sure he will return to his everyday shortstop role with the Yankees in 2014, adding that he understands the club's need to seek insurance at the position but called it "my job."
