As one of the most famous athletes in the world, Derek Jeter has somehow managed to evade the spotlight throughout his 18-year career in pinstripes.
That miraculous feat has not been by accident, however, as the Yankees captain has learned something that most athletes haven’t yet — electronics can lead to trouble.
According to the New York Post, Jeter has a strict “no camera or phone” policy that he implements at his Florida mansion, which the locals so cleverly call “St. Jetersburg.” Reportedly, Jeter keeps a basket near the front door of his 30,785 square-foot castle and guests are expected to surrender their phones upon entering the shortstop’s home.
“He points and says, ‘Phones go there,’ so no one can take pictures inside his house,” a source told the Post.
