Derek Jeter said he's done after this season
February 13 , 2014
Derek Jeter announced that he's going to call it quits after playing one more season and he "could not be more sure."
"I know it in my heart," he said. "The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball." Jeter turns 40 this year and has been captain since 2003.
"Last year was a tough one for me," he said. "As I suffered through a bunch of injuries, I realized that some of the things that always came easily to me and were always fun had started to become a struggle. The one thing I always said to myself was that when baseball started to feel more like a job, it would be time to move forward."
