Derek Jeter puts in for week of vacation around July 4th

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter stopped by the organization’s HR office this morning to put in for a week of vacation from July 3-10.“Some friends and I are going down the Jersey shore. We got a couple rooms at Days Inn a few blocks off the beach,” said Jeter. “It should be a good time.”The Yankees require one-month notice of vacation for all employees, but have never had a player request vacation time.“I guess we have to give it to him,” said general manager Brian Cashman. “I looked and none of our utility infielders are on vacation that week, so we have people to fill in for him. We’ll just have to tweak our vacation policy for next year to exclude players.”
