New York Yankees' shortstop Derek Jeter has ample reason to celebrate -- he's signed a 10-year contract with the Yanks that is expected to pay him about $189 million, reports Reuters. Financial terms were not divulged, but if the price tag's on the money, Jeter's contract would be the second-richest in pro sports. (Friend and fellow shortstop Alex Rodriguez signed a 10-year contract with the Texas Rangers in December for $252 million). "I think everyone's blown away by the numbers," the 26-year-old Jeter, who has won four World Series titles in five full seasons in New York, told the Associated Press. In 1996, Jeter won the American League Rookie of the Year award in and helped the Yankees win the World Series that season. Last season, Jeter won Most Valuable Player honors in the All-Star game and also captured the MVP award in the World Series triumph over the New York Mets -- the third successive Fall Classic title for the Yankees.
