Derek Jeter Looks At Life After Baseball
Derek Jeter is looking at life after baseball after the injury filled 2013 season.
Following the release of his book, The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter, Jeter is now a book publisher by announcing the launch of his venture with Simon & Schuster.
Jeter spoke about Jeter Publishing at Joe Torre’s Safe at Home Foundation dinner over the weekend.
“I run the show — the CEO. I call the shots. Long process,” There was interest — everyone always asks me, ‘Well, when are you going to write another book?’ I’m not really interested in doing that. But I am interested in people’s stories.”
“This is my publishing imprint. It has my name on it. I’m going to try and make everyone proud.”
Jeter recently signed a one year, $12 million contract with the New York Yankees. The first children books should be releasing in 2014.
