TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 19 (UPI) —
Among Derek Jeter’s goals, after his retirement from baseball after the 2014 season, is to raise a family, he said Wednesday in Tampa, Fla.
Jeter, the New York Yankees’ shortstop, announced his retirement Feb. 12, saying, in part, “There are things I want to do.”
He amplified his statement Wednesday at a press conference attended by New York Yankees’ teammates and coaches, saying, “I want to have a family. That’s important to me. I have the utmost respect for all these guys [teammates] who have kids and families.”
Jeter, 39, most recently dated Hannah Davis, a Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret model, but the couple broke up a month ago, the New York Post said Wednesday.
