Derek Jeter’s Diary: The Final Season Begins

38 Notes

When Rivera decided to retire, he announced that in each ballpark, he wanted to meet people behind the scenes—employees or fans or people connected to the game who don’t get to tell their stories. He has spent a lifetime in the spotlight, the solitary figure in the middle of the mound. But as his baseball career enters his final months, Rivera has found pleasure in quiet moments with everyday people who perform the often thankless jobs of the baseball world.

Signing with the Yankees has given me a new sense of determination,” Ichiro said. “This is a unique team, a team that can have a player like Alex Rodriguez as a pinch hitter is special and to be part of that is exciting.
Sweet A-Rod burn, Ichiro.

Things are starting to get weird between A-Rod and Eric Chavez:
"Wanna play Go Fish, Chavvy?" “Not right now, Al.” “Yeah, I hate cards, too.” “It’s not that I hate cards —” “Me neither, I just hate them right now.” “We’ll play later, maybe.” “I love cards later.” “Maybe.” “Maybe’s great.”

"Will you sign my cast, Jetes? All the guys are." He waves his cast at me. There are no names on it. “How about you get Swish to go first? He signs big, I don’t want him to sign over my name.” “It would really mean a lot to me if you went first.” “I don’t have a Sharpie.” “I have one right here.” He holds up a marker, and I notice he’s got a newspaper in his lap. He’s finished a Sudoku puzzle, but instead of numbers there are big red letters in all the boxes, spelling ARODAROD in every direction.
