Derek Jeter Announces New Website
For 20 years, Derek Jeter was the best in dealing with the media. Now, he's combining his skills with technology and will give other players that best opportunity to display themselves to the public.
From a statement on the new website, ThePlayersTribune.com:
"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."
The idea is to give fans an unfiltered and unguarded look at their favorite professional athletes:
"My goal is for the site to ultimately transform how athletes and newsmakers share information, bringing fans closer than ever to the games they love."
The statement released on the website Wednesday morning is the first the public has heard from Jeter since his final major league game at Fenway last Sunday.
