Derek Jeter may be retired, but we still have a huge amount of respect for this 20 year MLB veteran and 5 time World Series champion. Jeter was central to the New York Yankees success in the 90s and 2000s, and holds many awards and records. He’s commonly regarded as one of the best players of his generation.
