On Wednesday, the inevitable announcement of Derek Jeter’s retirement finally came. At 39 going on 40, the New York Yankees legend had to hang them up sooner or later. The 2014 season will be his last in pinstripes. Sort of like how Mariano Rivera’s final season was a farewell tour, fans can expect that and more for Jeter.

He’s been a remarkable ambassador to the game of baseball, and is one of the true class acts in the game.

His post on Facebook hit Twitter like the ice storm in Atlanta. Almost immediately, Sochi ceased to exist in the United States. Fans and media members turned their attention to the end of an era.

Following is a collection of the best reactions.
