Derek Jeter Newsbeat
Sunday, July 10, 2016
Derek Jeter is finally a married man. The 42-year-old former New York Yankees captain married model Hannah Davis, 26, on Saturday. And rather than throw a big showbiz wedding, the couple chose to exchange their vows in a small and intimate ceremony with only close friends and family in Napa, Calif.
The ceremony took place outside at the picturesque Meadowood resort in Napa, and Sports Illustrated swimsuit beauty Davis walked down the aisle in a stunning, custom-made Vera Wang gown.
. . .
There were less than 100 guests at the wedding and only a few former Yankees made the cut for the nuptials: Jeter’s longtime pals Jorge Posada, Andruw Jones and Tino Martinez.
Also there were Jeter’s close family, his parents, Charles and Dorothy, and sister, Sharlee. On Davis’ side were a few of her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model pals.
Did Jim ever get around to sending the BBTF gift?

Where did baseball go?
Former New York Yankees great Derek Jeter told CNBC on Wednesday his “ultimate goal” is to own a Major League Baseball team.
“In my mind, this is the greatest sport in the world,” Jeter told “Squawk Box,” saying a key motivation for owning a team would be help the game grow.
“I think baseball is taking somewhat of a back seat to some of the other sports,” said the ex-Yankees captain and shortstop, who retired in 2014 after a 20-year career with the team. “Some of the other sports are the sexy sports.”
“I think kids, nowadays they look at players playing in college and the next year they’re in the NFL or the NBA,” he said. “Baseball, you sort of get lost, because you have to play in the minor leagues for a little bit. Kids in this generation are into instant gratification.”

DER-EK CHEAT-ER (clap, clap, clap, clap, clap)...
The video in question was posted by Jeter’s sister, Sharlee, who is also the president of his Turn 2 Foundation. It’s a charity event, so everything they’re doing is ultimately for a good cause, but it’s difficult to get past what appears to be a staged event. ...
Based on the smirk on Jeter’s face before he even tees off, he was either very confident or he knew they were pranking the masses. We’ll go with that latter, especially since there’s no real evidence the ball went in the cup. In fact, we’re not even sure the ball landed before the crowd erupted into cheers. If so, then maybe he knocked it in on the fly.
This isn’t to say Derek Jeter didn’t hit a hole-in-one on Friday, or that he’s not capable. But this also isn’t to say that’s he not capable of having a little harmless fun at our expense while drawing more attention to his tournament and his foundation.

According to a report from the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo, then-Montreal Expos owner Jeffrey Loria wanted Derek Jeter so bad that he gave his general manager, Jim Beattie, free reign to offer everything the team had.
So, the report said, Beattie offered Yankees general manager Brian Cashman a crazy package: Pedro Martinez and Vladimir Guerrero. Obviously, Cashman rejected it.
“I can’t trade Derek Jeter,” Cashman said, according to the report.
The report didn’t say which year the deal was proposed.
