It’s hard to think about Derek Jeter hanging his cleats up, but one day it will happen. What Jeter plans to do after he’s done with baseball is unknown, but what he do know is that it will involve having a hand in the book publishing business.

The NY Times reported the news of Jeter’s latest business venture:

On Thursday, Jeter, the Yankees’ shortstop and captain, announced that he would start a publishing imprint, Jeter Publishing, a partnership with Simon & Schuster. Saying he had thought a lot about his future while recovering from injuries last season, he portrayed the move asa way to explore a project that combines his interests in business and content in books, film and TV.

Jeter Publishing’s first books are expected to be released in 2014. One of the first books planned is a ‘Derek Jeter’s Guide to Baseball’ for young readers. Jeter said he intended to be heavily involved in in the details of every book.

Surely this is just one of many more moves to come for Jeter, who may soon be embarking on his final season come the spring.
