Yankees: Derek Jeter announces retirement via Facebook

If you haven’t heard, the Yankees captain Derek Jeter announced that 2014 will be his last season.

Thought this news is not a shock, considering Jeter is about to turn 40-years old, is still sad for Yankees fans as he is not only the team Captain but the last of the infamous “Core Four.”

Jeter’s departure brings a slew of mixed emotions as he has become not only a Yankees icon, but a sports one. And athletes like Jeter are rarefied air these days.

Here is the official note from Jeter’s Facebook page:
