Would wear Jeter hat to Fenway

King, a long time Boston Red Sox fan, admits he would wear a Derek Jeter hat to Fenway Park in honor of the New York Yankees shortstop’s last game if he were attending.

For years, the Red Sox and the Yankees have been mortal enemies and this year Derek Jeter is going to finish his career at Fenway Park. We hated him all those years because he always broke our hearts but everybody in that stadium is going to stand and applaud at every at-bat that he has in that last game. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but if I was there, I’d wear a Jeter hat to Fenway Park. My kids would never speak to me again.

Cancels retirement for Red Sox deal

Reports confirm that Jeter will sign a contract with the Boston Red Sox for $25 million dollars for three years.  The New York Yankees and The Boston Red Sox are long-time rivals and fans from both teams are against the deal. One Boston fan says:

The guy is a first-rate jerkoff. He comes to our team, takes a wicked huge load of money, and he probably won’t do a damn thing for us. Screw Jeter. We don’t need him playing in Fenway

The contract will be signed this week.

Retiring

Announcement

Jeter announces, in a 15 paragraph post on his Facebook page, that the 2014 baseball season will be his final and will be retiring from the New York Yankees:

I realized that some of the things that always came easily to me and were always fun had started to become a struggle. The one thing I always said to myself was that when baseball started to feel more like a job, it would be time to move forward.
