“I have to say, I can’t recall even a single tip or rumor that this guy ever got up to any trouble,” National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine told CBS Sports. “I wish I could give you something. There are some athletes we could talk about for hours, about all the horrible and nasty stuff you hear. With Derek Jeter, I’ve not heard a thing.”
Jeter’s finale came exactly 46 years after Mickey Mantle’s last game.
Well done, Derek. Well done.
