Jeter to retire after 2014

Derek Jeter's long and storied career is coming to an end. The legendary Yankees shortstop posted a note on his Facebook page saying that the 2014 season will be his last. Jeter started off the lengthy post thanking fans for their support and said that his recent injuries and struggles made baseball start to feel like a job, and that feeling made him sure that it was about time to stop playing. He capped it off by promising fans he'd try to help the team win a World Series championship this season -- if he did manage to pull that off, it'd be his sixth title with the team.
