Australian Team Claims They Signed Jeter on April Fools
It's April Fools Day, which means it's time for massive internet hoaxes to be pulled. But today, the Adelaide Bite of the Australian Baseball League pulled a really good one by claiming that they had signed Derek Jeter for the season as a player/coach.
The Yankees responded in kind:
Obviously, it's a joke... Jeter will not be playing -- or coaching -- in Australia. He is among the greatest players in baseball history but he's hung them up for good.
The only question left in Jeter's baseball resume is when will he be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
