At the minor-league center of the Yankees, Jeter participated in his first practice this year and it seemed to be a success, with the star claiming all was 'good' afterwards.
Speaking to ABC.com, the 40-year-old spoke of his first practice and the pressures surrounding his comeback.
"Everything is good so far, knock on word. My job is to be ready to play," Jeter said. "I remember when I was 35, everyone said that was it. He can't play anymore. End of my career. So, it's really nothing different. Eventually, somebody is going to be right, you know what I mean? You're going to run out of numbers."
This qualifies as good news for Yankees fans and personnel as they try their best to get back into big-time this season.
In 2013, the Yankees missed out on the play-offs, and with Alex Rodriguez suspended for the season, things looked like they could get worse this season.
However, with the recent signing of superstar pitcher Masahiro Tanaka and Jeter's return, everything is looking up for the MLB's most successful ball club.
Yankees pitchers, catchers and injured players start workouts February 15th, and Jeter said he'll remain at the complex until the first full team big league workout February 20th.
