Jeter comes clean about giving gift baskets to one-night stands: Report

Derek Jeter may be retiring from baseball with a giant pile of farewell gifts from major league teams but, it seems the Yankees shortstop wasn't quite as generous with parting gifts for his one-night stands as once thought.

The Captain claims he's never given gift baskets of signed memorabilia to his female "conquests," according to an article in this week's New York Magazine.

In Chris Smith's candid article about Jeter's daily routine, New York's one-time most eligible bachelor finally comes clean about the legendary rumor he's tried to ignore:

“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!”

To refresh your memory, the New York Post reported in 2011 that Jeter would order a car to take the woman home the next morning and that they'd have baskets filled with cherished goodies, such as a signed baseball from Jeter, waiting for them at the door.

The Post story, quoting an unnamed friend of Jeter, claims he once gave the same girl the a gift basket twice.

Jeter, the thinking man's baseball player, probably knows better than to get caught in a double play.
