It's great to see a player that knows its time to go, but would you expect any else from Derek Jeter? Having announced that 2014 will be his last year this week, Jeter will allow fans to say goodbye in an awesome farewell tour. Stuff like this is good for baseball. Along with increased ticket sales at every stop the Yankee's make this year, it gets people excited about the history of the game and looking back over a body of work. Jeter was a once in a lifetime talent and another iconic Yankee. The Yankee's may have to wait a decade to find another star like this. For now, fans should just sit back and enjoy watching one of the best wind down his career. Hopefully he can finish healthy and with a descent batting average. I'm sure he will have no problem making the all-star team, but MLB should make sure he is added to the squad in his final campaign. Below are a few stories on Jeter's announcement.
