Derek Jeter is the cover boy for the April issue of GQ magazine. The MLB superstar did a fun photoshoot…
Derek Jeter is not a victory robot. He knows his last season was rough. And yeah, he’s pissed at the Yankees about that contract negotiation. The most famous player in baseball sat down with Seth Mnookin to talk his private life, the press, and the specter of his final years in pinstripes.
This was one of my favorite pieces from the interview:
Jeter attributes his ability to avoid getting caught up in scandals to his upbringing and his never losing sight of what he wanted to do with his life. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I didn’t go out and have fun,” he says. “But there’s been a lot of players that come to New York and get caught up in the lifestyle, and before you know it, they’re sent away to another team because it affected their performance. My number one priority was on the field. I’ve had fun. It’s not like I’ve never gone out; I’ve done a lot of things. But I’ve always kept sight of my number one priority.”
