Derek Jeter is the darling of New York, has played with the Yankees his entire career, and has more awards and World Series championships than a player can ever dream of as a young baseball fan.  Jeter is The Captain of the Yankees, an icon in and out of Yankee Stadium. Jeter has made a lot of money in his Yankees career, $253,159,364 according to Baseball Reference.  What is surprising, is that his net worth,as reported by CelebrityNetWorth, is only $125 million.  I say “only” when comparing Jeter to a couple of his contemporaries, including Alex Rodriguez.

PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees
