Many people assumed that 2014 would be Jeter’s final season in Major League Baseball and now it’s official. The 39-year-old currently has 3,316 career hits and is a first-ballot future Hall of Famer. He’s 119 hits away from moving into sixth-place on the all-time list.

“So it was really months ago when I realized that this season would likely be my last," Jeter wrote in a statement. "As I came to this conclusion and shared it with my friends and family, they all told me to hold off saying anything until I was absolutely 100 percent sure. And the thing is, I could not be more sure. I know it in my heart. The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball."

The veteran shortstop was limited to just 17 games in 2013 because a slew of injuries. But teammate David Phelps said recently that Jeter “looks amazing” after recently watching some of his workouts at the Yankees’ spring training facility. Jeter has been working out in Tampa for a couple of weeks while hitting in the batting cage and fielding ground balls.

So what are the Yankees’ odds to win the World Series in Jeter’s final year? According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Yankees are 10/1 to win this year’s Fall Classic, which gives them the third-best odds behind the Dodgers (13/2) and Tigers (17/2). The defending World Series champion Red Sox are also 12/1, while the Cardinals are 12/1 and so are the Nationals.
