NEW YORK (CBS NewYork) – Yankees captain Derek Jeter says it’s “time for something new.”
And that means he’ll be walking away from the game that made him a New York icon — and a baseball legend.
In a letter posted to his Facebook page, Jeter said he would be retiring after the 2014 season and “could not be more sure” about his decision.
“I know it in my heart,” he wrote. “The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball.”
