You may not get Derek Jeter’s phone numbers but the New York Yankees slugger gives gift baskets to his one night stands. According to the New York Post, “Derek has girls stay with him at his apartment in New York, and then he gets them a car to take them home the next day. Waiting in his car is a gift basket containing signed Jeter memorabilia, usually a signed baseball.”
After a well publicized break up with his long time girlfriend actress Minka Kelly this summer, Jeter is a little rusty in the dating game. He made the mistake of regifting a second gift basket to a girl he had forgotten he had hooked up with before.
But don’t feel too bad, an autographed baseball is worth $250!
Derek Jeter’s season maybe over with the New York Yankees, but his relationship with Minka Kelly has gone into extra innings. The couple was spotted in Miami together over the weekend having breakfast at Morgans South Beach. A source told the New York Post, “They are trying to see what the future holds for them. They may eventually get back together. This was not some sort of final conversation and meeting between them.”
After marriage rumors, Kelly and Jeter threw fans a curve ball when they broke up in August after three years together. Kelly is currently on location in Miami, filming her new show “Charles Angels” on ABC. After the breakup, Kelly was linked to her costar Ramon Rodriguez.
Last Thursday the Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs by the Detroit Tigers, but at least Jeter is not striking out off the field.
Our jersey chaser of the month Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter have broken up! The couple, who have been dating for three years, confirmed the news to People, “They care about each other and it was amicable,” says a source. “They’re still friends.”
The breakup comes just a month after the very private pair spoke about their relationship in the HBO documentary on Jeter’s 3,000th hit. In Derek Jeter 3K, Kelly joked about baseball IQ, “I didn’t know the difference between a run and a homerun.” Talk about a curveball!
While Kelly has become a regular fixture at Yankees Stadium, her schedule has kept her busy as she films the new Charlies Angels series down in Miami. Jeter’s Yankees are battling for a playoff position and are one game back from the Boston Red Sox.
While I feel for Minka… the good news is there is still a chance for the rest of us!
Ex-New York Yankees batboy Luis Castillo lived every baseball fan’s fantasy and is now revealing team secrets to the New York Post… even how he got the nickname of Squeegee by Derek Jeter himself. According to Castillo, Jeter would great him and fellow batboys by saying, “‘How’re you doin’, biatches?’ Bee-atch-es. You’d turn around and say to yourself, Hunh? Was that Derek Jeter who waltzed past, the team captain, the man who is — in the public eye — a model of correctness and good taste?”
Castillo started his tenure with the Yankees when he was just 14 but later served as a clubhouse assistant. Though a committed man now to our Jersey Chaser of the Month, Jeter used his trainer to pick up woman in New York night clubs. “.He would ask the trainer to go up to the woman and tell her that Derek Jeter wanted to talk with her. Then he would leave the bar first and wait for her. I would often see groups of women giggling and leaving with the trainer, who would lead them to their rendezvous with the captain.”
While Castillo didn’t rearrange booty calls for Jeter, he did have to lay out clothes and put toothpaste on his toothbrush for Alex Rodriguez.
“Jeter and some of the other guys were terrific tippers. Roger Clemens gave me $3,000 at the end of the year. Posada gave me $7,000. A-Rod might come in with $1,400. Sure, it’s still a sizable amount, but when he found out that other players were tipping higher, he had to imitate them, and he bumped his tips up.” Castillo said. “He had to make sure he was the best tipper in the league. He even tipped me $100 a week to make sure there was a creatine shake waiting for him after each home game.”
Wonder if Cameron Diaz has to make his creatine shake now?
