NEW YORK, N.Y. - Derek Jeter is among the most media-savvy athletes on the planet, but he says it came through trial and error.I think you learn through experience, he told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, three days after he finished his 20th and final season with the New York Yankees. Ive made my fair share of mistakes with the media.Jeter is hoping to help other athletes avoid those mistakes a€” and get out their own unfiltered stories a€” with the launch of The Players Tribune website. His site, which went live Wednesday, promises unique access to top athletes in every sport a€” from videos to photos to podcasts and more a€” in their own words.You want players to feel like this is a safe place where they can get their message across how they want to portray it, the former shortstop said.Jeter said he doesnt see The Players Tribune as a replacement for reporters.Were not trying to take away from sportswriters. Sportswriters are what makes sports successful, he said. I think were sort of working in conjunction with them.The 40-year-old said todays athletes are familiar with a variety of platforms to get across their message.This generation has fun sharing things, he said.But he said his website will fill a void in the communication process, noting it will let players go into more detail than the 140-character limit on Twitter. (He isnt on Twitter and acknowledged hes not too familiar with it.)How many times do you see someone put something out, and then next thing you know, theyre saying it came across the wrong way, it was out of context, its not what I meant, he said.He also noted that sports media doesnt always have time to cover all athletes and tell their storiesThe former All-Star won five championships during a storied career. In his first post on the site, he spoke about the whirlwind of his final season and his disappointment in missing the post-season.When asked if he watched the Kansas City Royals thrilling extra-innings win over the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card game on Tuesday night, he said no.Even though it was Jeters decision to call it a career, the desire to be out there remains: He likened watching the post-season to being a kid who isnt allowed to play with his friends.But he made it clear that he wont be returning to Yankee Stadium, either as a player or as a broadcaster.Im not going to be in the booth, he said. I have a hard time criticizing people.Jeter said he plans to concentrate on the website and expand his business portfolio.I have a whole lot to learn, but its exciting, he said.___Online:http://www.theplayerstribune.c.....m___Follow Nekesa Mumbi Moody at Antonio Gates Jersey .
