Earlier today, longtime New York Yankees player Derek Jeter announced he'll say farewell to baseball following his 2014 MLB season. The shortstop is entering his 20th season with the Yankees this spring. Jeter is a five-time World Series champion, a 13-time All Star, and the Yankees' all-time career leader in hits with 3,316.

Jeter released a statement on his official Facebook page to deliver the news. In it, he called his 2013 a "tough one" (citing a broken ankle) but noted he came to the conclusion months ago that this season would, indeed, be his last.

He wrote, "I will remember it all: the cheers, the boos, every win, all the plane trips, the bus rides, the clubhouses, the walks through the tunnel and every drive to and from the Bronx."

Jeter's final game will be Sept. 28 at Fenway Park, with his final game at Yankee Stadium taking place Sept. 25.
