NYDN: Derek Jeter makes Hannah Davis pay half the pizza check in Italy

Is Jetes still trying to prove that he’s not paying for sex?

Derek Jeter and his supermodel girlfriend Hannah Davis decided to enjoy their Italian vacation by going Dutch.

Jeter — who made hundreds of millions playing for the Yankees — and Davis — who pulls in about $5 million a year modeling — made out and ate pizza near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Then they asked to split the bill, each paying with their AmEx Black Cards (available to those who charge more than $250,000 per year!).

Meet the French teenager trying to become the first woman in MLB

Major League Baseball is one step closer to having its first female player. On Sunday, 16-year-old French teenager Melissa Mayeux became the first known female to be added to MLB’s international registration list.

That means Mayeux is eligible to be signed by a club during the next international signing period, which begins July 2.

While anyone can attempt to register for the list, only players who have the potential to be signed actually make the cut. Even if Mayeux isn’t signed by a club, the fact that she was accepted for the list solidifies her status as a legitimate baseball prospect.

“She’s a legitimate shortstop who makes all the plays and is very smooth and fluid in the field,” he said. “She swings the bat really well and is fearless.”
