Derek Jeter announces 2014 will be his last season.
Derek Jeter announced on his Facebook page that the 2014 season will indeed be his last and in typical Jeter fashion, he did it will grace and class by thanking the fans for everything they have done for him over the years.
To that I say…
As honored as you feel to have worn the pinstripes it goes the same for me when it comes to having watched you, Mo, Jorge, Bernie, Andy and others along the years.
I know Yankee fans get a bad rap for being “spoiled”, but in some regard we truly have been the last 20 years.
No team, no group of players will ever bring any organization the same amount of joy that you and your teammates did to us. What we saw in the late 90’s, early oughts will never happen again.
So once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything.
