Over the course of his career, Derek Jeter built a reputation for being completely focused on winning baseball games. For Jeter, this meant that during the season, he would focus solely on improving his game without allowing any distractions. Furthermore, he stayed away from anything that might disturb his ability to focus on winning.

That is why the Yankee legend was rarely seen going crazy while partying. Although he did have fun, Jeter did so in moderation throughout his career. But after retiring, he became less strict about it. In fact, soon after his retirement, Jeter was spotted partying with a top rapper and producer.

In December of that year, he was spotted partying with Timbaland, the $85 million worth musician and producer. The two reportedly enjoyed a guys’ night out together at a club in Miami.

At the time, he and Hannah Davis were dating, but she was not at the gathering. Jeter reportedly had fun while out with Timbaland but didn’t go overboard, a trait that he has displayed for years. In fact, Jeter once asked guests at a party he hosted to fulfill a bizarre request to maintain his privacy. The Yankee legend has always chosen to maintain a low profile while spending a night out on the town.

Furthermore, he generally disliked drawing the media’s attention to himself and preferred going unnoticed. The media would generally blow things out of proportion if he partied too hard, and he didn’t want that.
