Derek Jeter Denies Gift Basket Rumors

Many around the league and on Twitter, myself included, have had fun with the rumor that Derek Jeter gave gift baskets to all his one night stands over the years. The gift baskets reportedly included signed memorabilia, pictures, and baseballs of the Yankees captain. Either someone finally worked up enough nerve to ask the Yankee captain or Derek finally stopped caring and answered the question but Jeter opened up about the issue to New York Magazine's Chris Smith.

The New York Post reported way back in 2011 that Jeter was handing out gift baskets to one night stands after one of the women came forward because one woman in particular received two baskets. Lucky girl.

Anyway here is the direct quote from Jeter and the link above:

“Like I’m giving them signed baseballs and pictures of myself on the way out! Who comes up with a story like that?” (Jeter) laughs, incredulous. “It said the reason people found out was because I gave the same girl the same basket and I had forgotten I’d given her one—like there are so many people coming through I forgot!”

Now that we have that out of the way we can go back to playing and worrying about baseball.
