Interviewed by GQ’s Seth Mnookin, Jeter opens up about his All-Star, championship rich career, and his personal life.
On his secret to a clean image and success….
“My parents always told me, ‘There’s always going to be someone that’s better,’ ” he says. “But there’s no reason why someone should outwork you. That’s just an excuse.”
- “I think you know when you get there. But I don’t sit here and map it out and say, ‘Okay, five years from now I’m done’—’cause what if you don’t feel that way when you get there?”
On protecting his privacy….
- “I understand the interest,” Jeter says. “I do. I understand people want to know. I get that. And I think in terms of your career, your occupation, they can know anything they want.” When it comes to what he does after hours, though, “some things should be kept private.”
