(Feb. 12, 2014) — New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter announced his retirement Wednesday on his Facebook page.

“From the time I was a kid, my dream was always very vivid and it never changed: I was going to be the shortstop for the NY Yankees,” Jeter’s statement says.  “It started as an empty canvas more than 20 years ago, and now that I look at it, It’s almost complete.”

Jeter, a former student at Kalamazoo Central High School, said the 2014 season will be his last year playing professional baseball.
