Little Giants fan devastated about missed foul ball

I’ve loved going to baseball games for as long as I can remember, and it’s even more exciting when you’re a kid. Why? Well, how about the idea of catching a foul ball hit by one of your favorite players? As a youngster, the idea of going to Yankee Stadium and catching one off the bat of someone like Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams or any other Bronx Bomber was a prospect that...

The Players’ Tribune expanding digital video offerings with From Somewhere series

Digital video has already been a part of the content offered by The Players’ Tribune, Derek Jeter’s media venture devoted to giving athletes a voice in providing their own perspective and telling their own stories. But the site is making a bigger push into that medium with a new series. Most of TPT’s content has consisted of articles presumably written by athletes themselves...

Derek Jeter rickrolled readers in debut Players’ Tribune post

One of Derek Jeter’s first of many post-retirement endeavors was to unveil The Players’ Tribune, a website which has the stated goal of allowing athletes to express themselves freely, unfettered and unedited (well, save for just a tinge — or a lot — of editing, apparently). The so-called editorial freedom has attracted the likes of Russell Wilson, Blake Griffin and Kevin...

Derek Jeter is a Rick Roller

First, he hustles President Obama on the golf course, and now this. Retired Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has often said he's not a big fan of social media, so it was pretty shocking when he revealed that he had opened a Twitter account in a new Q&A he published for his website, The Players' Tribune. However, Jeter decided to pull a fast one on his readers by going all 2008 on...

Isn't it time for Brian (Fredo) Cashman to grow the bleep up?

Last October, after the Yankees announced that Brian (Fredo) Cashman would be coming back as general manager, I made a conscious choice that I had to pull back on my "Cashman must go" narrative in Subway Squawkers. Not only was my anti-Cashman rhetoric futile, but all of the negativity was getting me down. Since then, I have made a conscious choice to have more positive things in...

President Obama claims Derek Jeter hustled him on golf course

Everyone knows how much President Obama loves his golf — and that includes Derek Jeter. The five-time World Series champion, who was known for his extraordinary hustle on the diamond, apparently brought that same killer instinct to a golf course in Nevada last November when he met the leader of the free world for a friendly round of golf. Only it wasn't that friendly, if you...

Derek Jeter hustled President Obama at a golf tournament

Apparently, according to President Barack Obama, Derek Jeter is as good at hustling on the field as he is off of it. In speaking with guests at a fundraiser, the president said that the former New York Yankees shortstop swindled him out of a few bucks at a golf tournament: “He and Derek Jeter stole money from me at Shadow Creek,” Obama said of [Brian] Greenspun, referring to...

Obama claims Derek Jeter hustled him at golf

President Barack Obama can be described in many words: patriot, scholar, politician, well-spoken and, based on an experience he had in Las Vegas, gullible. In a post by Dylan Byers on Politico, President Obama has claimed that he was hustled in golf by New York Yankees legend and future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter and that the former shortstop “stole money” from him. Adding insult...

President Obama says Derek Jeter hustled him on the golf course

While speaking at a fundraiser Monday at the home of Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun, Obama told a story about the former Yankees shortstop and Greenspun hustling him on a Vegas golf course.

Obama says Derek Jeter once hustled him on golf course

Derek Jeter is presumably good at a lot of things, including golf. Unfortunately, no one told the president of the United States about that. President Barack Obama was in Las Vegas on Monday where he spoke at a fundraiser at the home of Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun. While speaking, Obama recalled a previous trip to Vegas in which he hung out with Greenspun and New York Yankees...

Yankees retire Posada's No. 20 in Monument Park

NEW YORK (AP) The Yankees most recent championship teams were built around a group of players that came to be known as the ''Core Four.'' There was the suave leader Derek Jeter, the homespun starter Andy Pettitte and the classy closer Mariano Rivera. Jorge Posada was the fiery one. He spoke his mind in a clubhouse of singularly focused players. The catcher called out teammates and...

Report: Brian Cashman Told Derek Jeter He’d Rather Have Troy Tulowitzki In 2010

For all the love Derek Jeter receives from the New York Yankees, there was once a time when Brian Cashman thought the team could do without the shortstop. The Yankees general manager was profiled by Sports Illustrated recently (the article isn’t on the magazine’s website), and a source revealed that Cashman was brutally honest with Jeter during his contract negotiations in 2010...

Brian Cashman told Derek Jeter in 2010 he preferred Troy Tulowitzki

Long before Derek Jeter retired after the 2014 MLB season, he was in a heated contract dispute with the New York Yankees. At the time, team GM Brian Cashman was playing hardball, not wanting to pay big money to a declining star with limited defensive range. He spared no emotions during the negotiations and even told the Yankees captain that he would rather have Troy Tulowitzki at...

Forget SI Article, Yankees' GM Brian Cashman Looks Great Right Now

Did Brian Cashman really tell Derek Jeter that he'd rather have Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop for the New York Yankees? Did he really enjoy being one of the few to "tell the Captain no" in the midst of Jeter's "diva-like tendencies?" If you are to believe an article in this week's Sports Illustrated, the answer to these questions is yes. The Tulowitzki comments were supposedly made...

David Cone on pitching

David Cone was a thinking-man’s pitcher before he became a thinking-man’s analyst. The New York Yankees’ television color man took the mound for five teams in 17 major league seasons, and he logged a lion’s share of big wins along the way. Moxie played a role. The right-hander augmented his plus stuff with the same cerebral approach he now takes to the broadcast booth....

A-Rod and CC hug it out after Alex's 3000th hit.Well, that was a pretty exciting -- and exhausting -- day in Yankeeland! First, even I, the author of "The Redemption of A-Rod," was positively stunned when I heard that the Yankees were going to honor Alex Rodriguez with a special day for his 3000th hit. I don't seem to remember even Derek Jeter getting such a day for his own 3000th...

Examining pitfalls of negotiating NFL contracts without an agent

There is a growing school of thought amongst some NFL players that sports agents are expendable, but there are some potential problems with that argument. Russell Okung of the Seattle Seahawks is one such player.
