Fans are buying more Derek Jeter jerseys this season than jerseys of any other Major League Baseball player, according to sales on the league's website.

Jeter plans to retire at the end of the season.

Right behind the Yankees captain in jersey sales since Opening Day, in the Top 20 list announced by the league Thursday, are San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz and his teammate Dustin Pedroia.

The Dodgers have the most players on the list with three. Joining Kershaw (third) is Yasiel Puig (ninth) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (18th).

Newcomers to the list include Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman (12th), Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka (14th) and Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo (15th), who is hoping to be named Thursday as the final player on the National League's All-Star roster.
