‘Lovers in New York’ Jeter as Fox Sports commentator… Reunited with A-Rod￼
Reporter Han Nam-jik = Derek Jeter (49), a legendary shortstop in the American professional baseball major leagues, will start anew as a commentator.
On the 13th (Korean time), US Fox Sports announced on its social network service (SNS) that “Jitter will join the major league commentators this season.”
Fox Sports made a surprise announcement that Jeter would join the commentators at the outdoor event at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, USA, where the NFL Super Bowl, the largest festival in American professional sports, was in progress.
Alex Rodriguez, Jeter’s former teammate with the New York Yankees and once rumored to have a feud with Jeter, presented a jersey with the Fox logo and number 2 on it.
Rodriguez, who is already active as a commentator on Fox Sports, laughed cheerfully, saying, “I never thought we would meet again like this,” and “If the cast members eat in New York, Jeter has to pay for it.”
David Otis, who played for the Yankees’ rival Boston Red Sox, is also a Fox Sports commentator.
“I visited the Fox Sports cast during the World Series last year in Philadelphia, and Otis showed off his World Series ring. I joined the commentators to humble Otis,” Jeter joked.
Otis has experienced a total of three World Series championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013.
Jeter only played for the Yankees in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 토토사이트
Jeter was called “New York’s Sweetheart” during her active career.
Jeter, who was named by the Yankees with the 6th overall pick in the first round in 1992 and started his professional career, debuted in the big leagues in 1995 and wore only the Yankees uniform until 2014.
After appearing in 15 games in 1995, Jeter won the Rookie of the Year title in 1996 when he played his first full-time major league game. Since then, until his retirement, he was selected as an All-Star 14 times and won the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger five times each.
He was named World Series Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2000.
Jeter was inducted into the Hall of Fame with 396 out of 397 votes in 2020.
In August 2017, as a member of an investment group led by Bruce Sherman, Jeter, who participated in the purchase of the Miami Marlins club and became CEO, said goodbye to the Miami club by selling all of the club stocks he owned earlier this year.
Jeter, who had a relationship with the major leagues as a Yankees star and co-owner of Miami, now watches the game from a broadcast booth.
