There haven been a total of 15 captains throughout the history of the New York Yankees, and the last player to hold that lofty title was Derek Jeter. It turns out that Jeets won't be entirely relinquishing the title, as he's been named "Captain" of Jordan Brand's training category and its family of baseball athletes. While Jeter continues his relationship with Jordan Brand, his signature RE2PECT line will also continue to release new product, with new footwear and apparel hitting stores in Spring 2017. "I am thrilled to continue my relationship with the Jordan Brand," says Jeter. "I spent my entire baseball career trying to be the best player I could be and I am excited to help the next generation reach that goal through Jordan Training and Baseball."
