Yankees fans knew this day was coming soon than later.

The Captain, Derek Jeter, says he will retire at the end of this season, announcing it on his Facebook page, according to

“The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball,” wrote Jeter, who will follow Mariano Rivera into retirement a year after the legendary closer ended his 19-year playing career.

The 2014 campaign will be his 20th in the Majors. He enters it with 3,316 career hits (tenth-most all time) and a .312 lifetime batting average.

Jeter, 39, is a 13-time All-Star, 5-time Gold Glove winner, finishing among the top ten in AL MVP voting eight times and was the 1996 Rookie of the Year. He also won World Series MVP honors in 2000.

As far as his team accomplishments, Jeter was part of five World Series Championships and won seven AL Pennants with New York. Those years helped Jeter become the all-time MLB postseason leader in several categories including, games played, at bats, hits, runs scored and total bases.

After breaking his ankle in the 2012 postseason, Jeter was only able to play in 17 games last year – the lowest season since 1995, his first year, when he played in just 15 games.
