Marriage taking up most of Tampa resident Derek Jeter's time

NEW YORK — So what does retired-to-Tampa former Yankees star Derek Jeter do with all his free time?

"I got married, man, so that fulfills most of the day," Jeter said Saturday. "So yeah, there it is. Are you married? (30-plus years, he was told.) You should know to not even ask that question."

Jeter, 41, and model Hannah Davis were married last month and for the most part have kept a low profile.

When not performing husbandly duties, Jeter said he is doing "a lot of business stuff. I'm in Tampa most of the time. I come back and forth to do some business things here, especially with (The Players Tribune website he controls). But for the most part, I'm in Tampa."
