Exactly. He'll probably retire as one of the top 10 players in the history of his position. That's not too shabby.
It should be noted that not a lot of guys manage to play SS as a regular position past the age of 30. Robin Yount and Ernie Banks had given the position up by Jeter's age. So had Tony Fernandez.
