Jeter reflective on last opener? Nope


HOUSTON -- Derek Jeter could not have been any more matter of fact about his last Opening Day.

"I can't tell you what tomorrow will be like until we get to tomorrow," Jeter, 39, said. "But I will assume it will be like every other Opening Day. I will try to treat it like every other Opening Day. Every Opening Day is special when you have butterflies and you have nerves. I think that is a good thing. I don't foresee this being any different."

Jeter missed Opening Day in 2013 after he failed to fully recover from his broken ankle. He eventually said that Tuesday "probably" will be different than other first games since this will be his last.

Jeter finished off his final spring feeling satisfied that he had a good time.

"It was a fun spring for me in terms of getting back on the field and enjoying it," Jeter said.

Jeter has said a number of times that he feels fully healthy going into 2014.
