What happens in Derek Jeter's Florida mansion stays in Jeter's Florida mansion.
According to The New York Post's "Page Six," the New York Yankees captain ensures privacy by forcing all guests entering his home to leave their electronic devices at the door. Well, mostly just devices capable of taking a snapshot at what is inside.
Derek Jeter has a strict “no camera or phones” rule when it comes to his sprawling Florida mansion.
We’re told the famously private Yankee has a basket in the foyer of his 30,875-square-foot, multimillion dollar Davis Island home, dubbed by locals “St. Jetersburg.” All guests are expected to plunk down their camera phones before entering his castle.
When it comes to keeping a squeaky clean public image, there is no athlete who manages the scrutiny that goes along with fame better than Jeter. He is savvy, cautious, and above all, wise when it comes to keeping his name out of the headlines for negative reasons. If only one of his unnamed teammates could manage to do the same *cough* Alex Rodriguez *cough.
Of course, Jeter could simply enforce the house policy because he wants the time spent with his guests to be as wholesome as possible, without any distraction to the outside world.
