Derek Jeter: Still retiring

TAMPA, Fla. -- No change in the Derek Jeter situation, although the Captain did hit a home run in batting practice this morning across the street at the Yankees' minor league complex.

Jeter said on Thursday he would address his impending retirement next week, and sure enough, the Yankees announced today Jeter will hold a news conference in the Alex Rodriguez Memorial Pavilion -- the place where they hold big press conferences -- on Wednesday, Feb. 19, the day the regulars report, at 11:30 a.m.

Until then, Jeter's bat will do his talking for him.
