Once a player retires and isn’t part of the MLBPA anymore they have to be removed from the game for legal reasons. They would need permission to add Jeter to the game. They add new former players to the game every year and sometimes they lose some. It’s possible SDS has already wanted to and Jeter doesn’t want to be in the game or they couldn’t come to an agreement with him for whatever reason.

Re: Why isnít Derek Jeter in mlb games?

I'm always curious on the reasoning a player doesn't want to be in a game. Especially a guy like Jeter who doesn't need to negotiate dollars, he has enough.

Unless it's like a Barkley deal, where he wants them all to get paid more for using their likeness.

On a semi-related note - I would LOVE for SCEA to introduce historic teams on next gen. Something Iíve wanted for a very long time.

Because he's a terrible owner

They should put all the owners in GM Mode and you can build the team better than him.

Re: Why isnít Derek Jeter in mlb games?

Because years ago, after Acclaim closed their doors and stopped producing the All-Star Baseball series which featured Derek Jeter on the cover, Kolbe Launchbaugh who was then, the Senior Lead Designer of the Show, went to Jeter's house to try to work out a deal to add Jeter to the game.

During their meeting, Kolbe spilled red wine on Jeter's new $2,000 white sofa and the relationship between Jeter and SDS has been strained ever since. Kolbe, Eddy Cramm, Ramone Russell, and others at SDS agreed to pitch in and purchase Jeter a brand new sofa, but the damage had already been done.

It's a shame, but until Jeter is willing to forgive and forget, I don't expect to see Jeter in MLB The Show.

I heard that Launchbaugh also told Jeter that his dog looked fat, which may have been the breaking point.
