Derek Jeter Plays Winter Ball in Panama

Derek Jeter, in Panama, shows how it's done in the Bronx.

There is, or more accurately was, a long-standing tradition of major-league talent playing winter ball throughout Latin America. But with salaries what they are and more-sophisticated training year round, the practice, I (Evander) thought, was less prevalent: certainly among the stars of the game. Yet, check out Derek Jeter, rather strangely photographed, in Panama. Maybe he’s trying to forget Minka Kelly. Surely, the Yankees brass must be holding their collective breath.
