New York Yankees future Hall of Famer, Derek Jeter was one of the world’s most covered athletes in media during his 20-season career with the New York Yankees, yet seemed to stay out of controversy that many athletes deal with throughout their career. Now he’s becoming an entrepreneur just a few days after playing his last game with a website that will bring fans closer to their favorite athletes.
Jeter introduced The Players’ Tribune, a new media platform that will present the unfiltered voices of professional athletes, bringing fans closer to the games they love than ever before. Founded by Derek Jeter, The Players’ Tribune aims to provide unique insight into the daily sports conversation and to publish first-person stories directly from athletes. From video to podcasts to player polls and written pieces, The Tribune will strive to be “The Voice of the Game.”
In a statement on the site that posted Wednesday, Jeter said he wants it to “transform how athletes and newsmakers share information, and bring fans closer than ever to the games they love.”
Jeter, who admits to being guarded with reporters, attributed his success in what he called “the toughest media market” to being careful about what he said.
