Wright reacts to Jeter retirement

2/12/2014

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- David Wright offered this reaction upon learning Derek Jeter plans to retire after the 2014 season:

“I was fortunate as a young player in this town to be able to watch how Derek Jeter conducted himself on and off the field," Wright said. "I had the privilege to call Derek a teammate during the World Baseball Classic and got to see firsthand, how to lead by example. I've always been a big Derek Jeter fan for what he has done on the baseball field. I became an even bigger fan after getting to know Derek and learning there is more to this game than what goes on between the lines. Excluding the Subway Series, I wish him all the best in his final season.”
