Derek Jeter’s first yr with Fox’s MLB coverage ended because the World Series concluded on Wednesday night, and his teammates desired to know if he’d be returning with them for one more season.
Wait and see.
Jeter, who joined the crew this summer starting with the Cardinals-Cubs series in London, addressed what his first yr as a TV pundit was like.
“I didn’t expect to have this much fun,” Jeter said when prompted by host Kevin Burkhardt to reflect on the yr. “I didn’t know what I used to be getting myself into, but I had a lot fun here.
“We’re all fans of the spot, we’re fans of the sport. And to get a chance to sit down here and shine a light-weight on the young players which can be coming up, it’s been awesome and I’m looking forward to next yr.”
But when pressed by former Yankees teammate Alex Rodriguez if he’d be joining the Fox crew next yr, Jeter was coy and didn’t give a definitive answer.
“I don’t know yet,” Jeter responded. “I don’t know yet, we’ll see.”
Jeter and wife Hannah welcomed their fourth child this yr, a son named Kaius Green. The 49-year-old resigned as Marlins CEO before the 2022 season.
On Super Bowl Sunday, The Post first reported Jeter could be joining Fox.
In attempting to keep the previous Yankees captain on the published, David Ortiz had a present for Jeter.
“I only give this to my dawg,” the Hall of Fame designated hitter said before presenting Jeter with a shirt that literally said “My Dawg” with an image of the previous Red Sox star celebrating a house run on it.
“It took me a protracted time to get this,” Jeter said.
It was one in all various things Jeter was gifted or prompted to wear this season.
In London, Jeter was gifted a crown after which was trolled by Ortiz as he was gifted a No. 2 Red Sox jersey on live TV.
Before Game 5 of the ALCS, the crew all donned cowboy hats, though Jeter initially refused.
“Recent Yorkers don’t wear these. Recent Yorkers don’t do that,” he said.
Nonetheless, two days later, Jeter said it was all good fun, and he posted an image of himself on X wearing the hat.
Only time will tell if he’ll get more gifts next season.
