President Barack Obama and retired New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter sat down to discuss retirement and getting old and were nothing but smiles the whole time.

The two did an interview for The Players’ Tribune, and Obama apparently couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to take a humorous jab at the fact Jeter was considered very old for a baseball player.


Jeter retired from professional baseball after the 2014 season, and his storied career included five World Series championships and 14 All-Star selections. (SLIDESHOW: These Barely Clothed Women Love Baseball)

Obama’s also at the end of his career, although his retirement is mandatory.

The full interview is scheduled to be released Wednesday.
