Derek Jeter Launches The Player's Tribune

Derek Jeter just retired, but already has a new job. He founded a sports web site called The Player's Tribune.

40-year-old Derek Jeter retired from baseball just a couple days ago. He played 20 seasons for the New York Yankees. You would think he is taking a long vacation now. On the contrary, Derek Jeter enters new media as founding publisher of The Player's Tribune.

The Player's Tribune site is supposed to bring fans and athletes together. Derek Jeter wrote on the site: "I do think fans deserve more than “no comments” or “I don’t knows.” Those simple answers have always stemmed from a genuine concern that any statement, any opinion or detail, might be distorted. I have a unique perspective. Many of you saw me after that final home game, when the enormity of the moment hit me. I’m not a robot. Neither are the other athletes who at times might seem unapproachable. We all have emotions. We just need to be sure our thoughts will come across the way we intend. "

The Player's Tribune is going to be a place where athletes have the tools they need to share what they really think and feel. The site aims to offer a way to connect directly with our fans, with no filter. Derek Jeter's goal is for the site to ultimately transform how athletes and newsmakers share information, bringing fans closer than ever to the games they love.
