After finishing his storied career in 2014, Derek Jeter is finally celebrating his birthday without baseball, probably for the first time since he was a teenager. Jeter has stepped outside the public’s view since his retirement, as he often tried to avoid during his career. Now, however, he finally has the ability to enjoy life outside the limelight.
