"I want to thank the Good Lord for making me a Yankee," said Joe DiMaggio.
The New York Yankees are the most successful organization in the annals of North American professional sports. The Yankees have captured a record 27 World Series championships since its establishment in 1913. Babe Ruth, DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Derek Jeter are some of the ballplayers who helped the Yankees achieve such immortality on the diamond. Jeter expressed appreciation for being a lifelong Yankee when his iconic No. 2 jersey was retired during a pregame ceremony in the Bronx on May 14.
“I want to thank George Steinbrenner for giving me the opportunity to play my entire career for the only team I ever wanted to play for,” said Jeter, 43, a 14-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove Award winner.
“(I thank) the greatest fans in the history of sports, for pushing me, challenging me, making me accountable and, most importantly, embracing me from Day 1. Over 20 years, I’ve learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever, and I’ll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family.”
Athletic success often leads to mammoth contract extensions, lucrative endorsement deals and a slew of other enticing opportunities off the field. Perhaps most enticing, some of the world’s most gorgeous women aggressively pursue elite sportsmen. Most famously, DiMaggio exchanged vows with Hollywood sex symbol Marilyn Monroe at San Francisco City Hall on January 14, 1954. While the Yankee Clipper secured Monroe’s love, Jeter and Alex Rodriguez also scored with countless beauties during their time in pinstripes. Accordingly, let’s enjoy 20 risqué pictures of women who snuggled with Yankees players.
20 KATE HUDSON - ALEX RODRIGUEZ
Actress Kate Hudson dated Alex Rodriguez from May 2009 through December 2009. The 5-foot-6, 120-pound Hudson tired of Rodriguez’s infatuation with Madonna and dumped the tainted slugger.
“Kate was mad with jealousy,” said a source.
“She gave A-Rod three chances to stop contacting Madonna. How would you feel if your new boyfriend kept calling his ex? It broke her heart to break up with him, but she didn't have any choice. Kate and A-Rod were having lots of arguments in the two weeks before they broke up. They were fighting about everything and just couldn't get along.”
Hudson’s famous mother, Goldie Hawn, wasn’t a fan of Rodriguez’s, either.
“Kate was also worried that her parents didn't like him,” said the same source.
“Her mum had told her that she worried about (Rodriguez’s) lifestyle - always being on the road and with so many temptations - made him an unsuitable father figure for Kate's son.”
19 ERIN SIMMONS - ALEX RODRIGUEZ
Shortly after splitting with wrestling sexpot Torrie Wilson, Alex Rodriguez and fitness specialist Erin Simmons went as a couple to a December 2014 charity event in Houston for the Altus Foundation. The 5-foot-7, 135-pound Simmons flourished as a track and field competitor while attending Florida State University.
“After playing multiple sports growing up, I got on the track and field team at Florida State University,” said Simmons, 29, who also works as a track and field coach at Texas A&M University. “Easily one of the best experiences of my life, being involved with an elite athletic program like FSU gave me great resources to use for improving my fitness.”
Simmons and Rodriguez severed ties a few months later in the spring of 2015.
18 JORDANA BREWSTER - DEREK JETER
Fast & Furious actress Jordana Brewster and Derek Jeter rolled in the hay from July 2002 through April 2003. The 5-foot-7, 125-pound Brewster, who was born in Panama City, Panama, rebounded from the Jeter fling with musician Mark McGrath. Brewster quickly axed McGrath and began seeing film producer Andrew Form in April 2005. Brewster and Form exchanged vows in May 2007 and the couple has since had two children via gestational surrogate.
“I didn’t really have a choice about being open, since it was obvious I wasn’t pregnant,” said Brewster, 37.
“For me it wasn’t a choice; I needed to use a surrogate. But I didn’t feel judged. It’s more like I felt awkward. Sometimes I feel a little left out when other moms talk about what their birth experience was like, and I feel the loss of not having carried or having been able to carry.”
17 ALYSSA MILANO - CARL PAVANO
Faded actress Alyssa Milano has a longstanding obsession with guys on the diamond. Yet, no ballplayer fell for Milano’s charms more than Carl Pavano. Pavano was a critical member of the Florida Marlins’ title squad in 2003. Capitalizing on his impressive showings that autumn, Pavano signed a four-year deal valued at $39.95 million to become a New York Yankee in December 2004. An eager Milano quickly lured Pavano into her bedroom.
“This was right after he won the World Series,” said Milano, 44, who also bedded pitchers Brad Penny and Barry Zito.
“So he was kind of baseball royalty. It was before he came to the Yankees…and became the Carl Pavano you know.”
A brittle Pavano was disastrous in the Bronx and his reputation never fully recovered. Moreover, Pavano recorded only one more season with an ERA below 4.00 before shelving his cleats in February 2014.
16 LAURA POSADA - JORGE POSADA
Jorge Posada married Laura Posada in January 2000. Laura, a television personality and philanthropist, and Jorge have two children. Jorge called it a career in January 2012 and the Yankees retired his No. 20 jersey and gave him a plaque in Monument Park on August 22, 2015.
"I have never been nervous on a baseball field,'' said Posada, 46, a five-time All-Star and five-time Silver Slugger Award winner.
"I am today. I am simply a man who was born passionate about the baseball and the New York Yankees. I can honestly tell you this is one of the happiest days of my life.''
It’s safe to presume that the “happiest” day of Jorge’s life was when he met the saucy Laura. And they're together all these years later.
15 RACHEL UCHITEL - DEREK JETER
Derek Jeter enjoyed the company of Rachel Uchitel before Tiger Woods did. Disturbingly, years later, Woods told the 5-foot-6, 120-pound Uchitel that he wanted to watch her have a threesome with Jeter and Bones actor David Boreanaz.
"I had a dream we were married and I was leading the tournament," Woods reportedly wrote Uchitel.
"I came home, excited to see you, and there you were in the bedroom getting f--ked by Derek and David [Boreanaz]. Some part of me thinks you would like that."
Jeter apparently bedded Uchitel on multiple occasions before seeking a new lady. In contrast to Jeter’s carefree romps, Woods’ lust for the 42-year-old Uchitel initiated his downfall as a world-class golfer.
14 CAMERON DIAZ - ALEX RODRIGUEZ
Blond bombshell Cameron Diaz was in a relationship with Alex Rodriguez from May 2010 through October 2011. The 5-foot-9, 130-pound Diaz, who has been with a small army of men, infamously fed Rodriguez popcorn in their luxury seats at Super Bowl XLV.
“We were watching the game, and I was eating, and I was getting down to, like, the last couple pieces of popcorn,” said Diaz, 43.
“And all of a sudden, I see a hand coming in. And I’m like, anybody who knows me does not put their hand in my food, especially when it’s close to my mouth.”
Despite splitting, A-Rod still raves about Diaz.
"I don't like talking about my relationships," said Rodriguez, 42. "But I will tell you about CD: She's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and just an amazing light."
13 JENNIFER LOPEZ - ALEX RODRIGUEZ
Jennifer Lopez is an insatiably hungry cougar and Alex Rodriguez appreciates that. The 5-foot-5, 125-pound Lopez, and her 34C sweater kittens, has been with Rodriguez since January.
“I feel really lucky right now,” said the thrice-divorced Lopez, 48.
“(Alex is) a loving father. He’s a generous human being with his family, with his friends, with me. He’s caring and sweet and capable and responsible and just all the beautiful things you would want a man to be.”
Predictably, Rodriguez reciprocated his adoration for Lopez.
“Our kids get along really well, we’re both from New York, we’re both Latin, we’re both in our forties, we’re really enjoying life, but she really is one of the most impressive and smartest human beings I have ever met,” said Rodriguez, 42.
12 MELISSA BRITOS - ALEX RODRIGUEZ
Knockout model Melissa Britos did the horizontal poker with Alex Rodriguez on at least one occasion in late 2008.
"(Rodriguez) became obsessed with her,” said one of the model’s friends. “He sent her at least a dozen text messages, asking her to spend time with him."
Apparently, the scandalous slugger’s advances worked and “Rod was seen dropping Melissa Britos off at her hotel and she wearing the same clothes she had on the night before.”
Tearfully, and shockingly, Rodriguez cuddled with Britos while he was still seeing Madonna.
"Alex is definitely excited by Madonna and wants to spend time with her,” said one of Rodriguez’s friends.
“But when she's not around and he is left to his own devices, he still wants the company of other beautiful women. He can't help it. It's in his nature."
11 TORRIE WILSON - ALEX RODRIGUEZ
Former WWE grappler Torrie Wilson periodically pinned Alex Rodriguez from 2011 through 2015. The 5-foot-7, 135-pound Wilson eventually tired of Rodriguez’s philandering and permanently ejected the steroid abuser from her bed.
"They had fun but he just has commitment issues, which is no surprise," said a source. "She expected it for a few months and he was good to her while they were together."
Still, although an amicable split, Wilson couldn’t refrain from needling Rodriguez on social media.
"Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity," tweeted Wilson, 42, who twice posed nude for Playboy magazine.
"There's nothing like a #Friend who has been there to see it all. #NeverForgetYourGirlsLadies #TampaLife #ForeverAGirlsGirl."
Wilson is still doing well today, as she keeps active on social media doing fitness modelling.
10 JESSICA CANSECO - JOSE CANSECO
Before getting “blacklisted” by Major League Baseball executives, Jose Canseco was a member of the New York Yankees squad that won the World Series in 2000. More importantly, Canseco exchanged vows with Hooters waitress Jessica Sekely in August 1996. While providing stellar customer service, Sekely met Canseco and gave the juicehead food and her number.
“I had a hard time falling asleep that night because I was thinking about my lunch-date,” wrote Sekely, 44.
“The fact that Jose had noticed me, when there were so many other pretty girls at Hooters, made me feel special. I know it sounds silly, but I was young and not terribly worldly, and he seemed like a very sophisticated adult. In the morning, my sort-of boyfriend, Steve, called to say hello, and to see what I was up to, and I told him that Jose had come into the restaurant the previous day. I felt awful about lying to Steve, but I didn't think I should torture him unnecessarily.”
Canseco and Sekely had a daughter, Josie Canseco, before divorcing in 1999.
9 JESSICA ALBA - DEREK JETER
Actress Jessica Alba cuddled with Derek Jeter sporadically throughout the summer of 2004. Disgustingly, Jeter allegedly infected the 5-foot-7, 125-pound Alba with herpes.
According to Jezebel, “Our source who worked for one of their camps, had to refill her Valtrex prescription for her on a regular basis! Guess who she got it from...that's right...dirty Derek Jeter.”
With or without the sexually transmitted disease, Alba exchanged vows with Cash Warren in May 2008. Alba and Warren have two daughters together and they are currently expecting another child.
"@cash_warren and I are officially going to be outnumbered #babyonboard #herewegoagain,” Alba, 36, wrote on Instagram.
Alba isn't quite the star in Hollywood today that she was during the mid 2000s, but she's definitely still among the more impressive names on Jeter's resume.
8 VANESSA MINNILLO - DEREK JETER
Breathtaking Filipina Vanessa Minnillo and Derek Jeter enjoyed adult relations from November 2003 through March 2006. The 5-foot-7, 120-pound Minnillo, a model who was named Miss Teen USA in 1998, was first spotted with Jeter courtside at a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden. Unsurprisingly, because Jeter was a womanizer, the duo eventually split. Minnillo married singer Nick Lachey in July 2011 and the couple have three children together.
“Nick is incredible,” said Vanessa, 36, who worked as a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and hosted Total Request Live on MTV.
“Nick is the reason that we are, I think, sane. He is our foundation. He is our rock. He keeps it together because Lord knows I can’t.”
As we know, Jeter went on to date several more women before settling down after his retirement.
7 MARILYN MONROE - JOE DIMAGGIO
As previously mentioned, DiMaggio married Marilyn Monroe at San Francisco City Hall in January 1954. DiMaggio and the 5-foot-5, 120-pound Monroe reportedly enjoyed a tremendous sex life.
“When we got together in the bedroom, it was like the gods were fighting; there were thunderclouds and lightning above us,” Dr. Rock Positano says DiMaggio told him.
Although completely compatible in the bedroom, DiMaggio hated Monroe’s lack of hygiene and was tortured by her inability to procreate.
“From Joe’s point of view, they didn’t stay married because Marilyn was not able to have children,” writes Positano.
“It was as simple as that. It was not about the published reports of jealousy and not wanting to take a back seat to her fame. Joe wanted kids with Marilyn, and Marilyn wanted to reward him with a family. In Italian terms, sex meant kids. Great sex meant great kids. Marilyn gave goddess sex, but no kids.”
Monroe and DiMaggio divorced in October 1954.
6 VIDA GUERRA - DEREK JETER
Cuban-American glamour model Vida Guerra banged Derek Jeter in 2005. Despite acknowledging Hannah Davis’ allure, Guerra is confident that she’s the hottest woman that Jeter’s ever bedded.
"Hannah is Derek's type for sure, he's always liked tall girls ... but she was like seven when him and I dated," said Guerra, 43, who achieved fame for her shapely derriere and spectacular 32D bust.
"Curves are in -- and I have all of those."
Gratefully, while Jeter is off the market, Guerra remains single. Furthermore, Guerra shed her clothes for the July 2006 issue of Playboy magazine. At this point you might be thinking of why there are so many conquests of Jeter on this list. Well, just look at who he dated and you'll understand why.
5 JESSICA BIEL - DEREK JETER
7th Heaven star Jessica Biel relished private moments with Derek Jeter from November 2006 through January 2007. Their relationship was very short term, but Biel found happiness soon after. Following their brief dalliance, the 5-foot-7, 120-pound Biel began seeing crooner Justin Timberlake. Biel and Timberlake married in October 2012 and had a son together approximately three years later in April 2015.
"(Justin and I) believe in loyalty, honesty. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things," said Biel, 35.
"Also, in the business, we're all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish. I understand that about my peers -- about being focused and driven -- and if you can find that and someone who shares the same values as you, it's like: Score!"
4 SCARLETT JOHANSSON - DEREK JETER
Scarlett Johansson and Derek Jeter supposedly had a one-night stand in the winter of 2005. The 5-foot-3, 125-pound Johansson, who is widely praised for her 32D headlights, quickly rebounded from Jeter and exchanged vows with actor Ryan Reynolds in September 2008. Johansson and Reynolds split in July 2011 and the curvaceous blond married a Frenchman named Romain Dauriac in October 2014. Sadly, the 32-year-old Johansson ditched Dauriac in the autumn of 2016.
“Mr. Dauriac is tired of having to run his life and his child's life based on Ms. Johansson's shooting schedule,” Dauriac's lawyers wrote in a statement.
Now, Johansson is still one of Hollywood's biggest and hottest stars. Jeter is set to complete the purchase of the Miami Marlins at some time in the near future.
3 HANNAH DAVIS - DEREK JETER
We had to eventually come to the woman who finally made a married man out of The Captain, right? Derek Jeter married Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hannah Davis in July 2016 and the lovebirds had a girl together earlier this month. Apparently, the 5-foot-10, 120-pound Davis is ready to procreate again in the near future.
“We want our kids’ lives to be as ‘normal’ as possible,” said Davis, 27.
“They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people. We don’t want them to be defined by their dad’s name — for them, we want him to just be ‘Dad.’ That will be the piece of him they’ll have that the rest of the world doesn’t. It will be special, and it will be theirs.”
2 MINKA KELLY - DEREK JETER
Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly was with Derek Jeter from October 2008 through February 2012. According to one insider, Jeter axed Kelly because he was unhappy that she was becoming a household name.
"They kept their relationship very, very quiet—there are no rumors of cheating, nothing. And Minka is handling this the way she handles everything, she's a down-to-earth, real person, a sweetheart, and this took her by surprise," says a source.
"This is Derek's doing for the most part. If you look back at his relationships, as some of the girls started to rise in fame, that's when they broke up. Vanessa Minnillo, Lara Dutta, they all start out with sexy photo shoots and then all of a sudden they blow up and it starts going awry. He has a history of it, and he's just repeating it with Minka."
Kelly is rumored to be single.
1 ADRIANA LIMA - DEREK JETER
Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima was a virgin until she married middling basketball player Marko Jarić in February 2009. Hence, considering the two were linked in 2006, the 5-foot-10, 115-pound Lima and Jeter did not have intercourse.
“Well, you know, sex is just for after marriage,” said Lima, 36.
“Sex is for after marriage. (Men) have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me.”
Although Jeter didn’t deflower Lima, the two likely enjoyed their private moments together. Since divorcing Jarić in March 2016, Lima has been connected to an array of guys. Lima is now having adult relations with a Turkish writer named Metin Hara.
What's our conclusion from this list? Jeter and A-Rod have left some EXTREMELEY big shoes to fill for future Yankee players.
