"Despite years of politely fending off reporters' questions or offering responses that veered toward the bland, Derek Jeter is joining the news media,"David Walstein reported Wednesday for the New York Times. "On Wednesday, just three days after playing his final baseball game, Jeter announced that he would publish The Players' Tribune, a website that gives athletes a forum to express their thoughts and feelings.
"According to a news release, athletes will be able to share first-person accounts, videos, podcasts, photographs and polls on the site. Jeter said he would be closely involved. . . ."
