Derek Jeter's retirement was one of the many stories surrounding baseball in 2014.
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
If you didn't think Derek Jeter lived a charmed life before, the way he ended his magnificent career may have changed your mind.
One of Major League Baseball's biggest storylines this past year was the Jeter farewell tour. Teams fell over themselves in giving away gifts to the man who, essentially had been the face of baseball since the day he stepped onto the field in 1996.
Jeter may never have won an MVP or had been the best player in the game at any point in his career, but he was pretty freaking good and nobody won more than the Yankees' all-time hits leader.
