Former Yankees’ shortstop Derek Jeter has kept plenty busy since he finished his 20-year career in the Bronx last September.

He founded The Players’ Tribune (which just rounded up $9.5 million in funding), hung with Hideki Matsui in Japan, and found himself at the Cricket World Cup in Australia a few months back.

And not to mention his imprint in the publishing world—Jeter Publishing, part of Simon & Schuster that publishes non fiction for adults and kids.
