Nothing is mine unless stated otherwise.
I broke in to tears, sobbing today when I heard the news, that Derek Jeter was retiring, I have loved Derek Jeter since, well before I can remember… all though I am completed saddened by his retirement I am overjoyed knowing that this is making him happy and for the person he is, the amazing career he has had and the legacy he is leaving behind on and off the field. Over the 17 years I have been on this earth, Derek Jeter has taught me a lesson for just about everything I need to know in my life and there is nothing I can say for that accept for thank you for being my Role Model, you will never stop being my Role Model ever, Let’s make this last year great. This year’s for you EL CAPITAN <3
I want to start by saying thank you.
I know they say that when you dream you eventually wake up. Well, for some reason, I’ve never had to wake up. Not just because of my time as a New York Yankee but also because I am living my dream every single day.
Last year was a tough one for me. As I suffered through a bunch of injuries, 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.
So really it was months ago when I realized that this season would be my last. As I came to this conclusion and shared it with my friends and family, they all told me to hold off saying anything until I was absolutely 100% sure.
And the thing is, I could not be more sure. I know it in my heart. The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball.
And then as you started to grow I started to realize that you weren’t like your mother, or your sister. You were more willful, impulsive, headstrong. What I realized is you’re like me. Why do you think we butt head so often? We’re cut from the same cloth, kiddo.
