Yankees Great Derek Jeter Finally Ties the Knot
Former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter married his longtime girlfriend, Hannah Davis at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, California.
For a man who won five World Series titles, five Gold Gloves, a Rookie of the Year award, an All-Star Game MVP, a World Series MVP and collected over 3,000 career hits, there was still one thing that Derek Jeter had yet to accomplish, marriage.
That is until Saturday afternoon when the 42-year-old sure-fire first ballot Hall of Famer said “I do” to 26-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hannah Davis.
The pair, who were engaged last October after three years of dating, held a private ceremony surrounded by a little less than 100 family and friends in picturesque Nor-Cal wine country.
Some of Jeter’s ex-Yankees teammates and closest friends in attendance were Tino Martinez, Andruw Jones, and Jorge Posada.
According to sources close to the couple, it is believed that Jeter is “definitely ready to be a dad,” and hopes they can start a family right away.
Tabloids will joke about the laundry list of beautiful/famous women Jeter dated during the span of his 20-year career, and the mysterious “gift baskets” that were delivered as a sign of thanks, but no thanks; but to live a life directly in the spotlight of the media, while working and living in one of the most unrelenting cities in the world, while staying 99% clean in terms of tabloid fodder, is a testament to the true character of ‘The Captain.’

Jeter was a class act from the moment he first put on Yankees pinstripes way back in 1995. From his consummate professionalism on the field to his charitable works off it, Derek Jeter absolutely deserves everything good that comes to him and his beautiful bride now and forever.
