Jeter and Tiger and Scandal

From "The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter"


The captain’s rocky 2010 actually started near the end of 2009, when his friend Tiger Woods was exposed as a serial adulterer in a scandal that would cost Woods his marriage and good name.Reports said that Jeter had introduced Tiger to one of his mistresses at the center of the storm, Rachel Uchitel, and that Jeter had also dated her at one time.

With so many superstar sports figures engulfed in scandal, Tiger and Jeter had represented the last men standing. That all changed when Woods crashed his Cadillac SUV into a fire hydrant and tree outside his home in the hours after the first Thanksgiving dinner of the rest of his life, unleashing a bimbo eruption to end all bimbo eruptions.

For Jeter, seeing his name connected to the Woods story in any way was an unfortunate development much too close for comfort.

“Man, they’re trying to bring me into this thing with Tiger, and I’ve
got nothing to do with it,” Jeter told a friend. “You see why I didn’t get
married?”
