Derek Jeter did not take much time to enjoy his retirement. The legendary Yankees shortstop has launched The Players’ Tribune, a sports/lifestyle site with one major difference than the rest — the content will be by athletes.
In an introduction, Jeter wrote that he wants the site to serve as a place where pro athletes can “connect directly with our fans, with no filter.”
“Over the next few months, we’ll be introducing a strong core of athlete editors and contributors who will shape the site into an online community filled with first-person stories and behind-the-scenes content,” explained Jeter. “My goal is for the site to ultimately transform how athletes and newsmakers share information, bringing fans closer than ever to the games they love.”
