Derek Jeter, Mr. November, one of the most clutch players to ever play the game seemingly wasn't afraid of anything in his career.
Except for one thing.

In a blog written by the former New York Yankees captain on The Player's Tribune, he revealed a fear of his that you wouldn't expect -- his fear of dogs.
Jeter said that he has "been scared of dogs almost my entire life." But that didn't stop his then-girlfriend (and now fiancee) Hannah Davis from getting him one of the largest dogs in the world -- a Mastiff.
That dog is enormous. Jeter said that there's been a learning curve for the both of them, but they've gotten more comfortable with each other:
When I first got Kane, I panicked a little. I'm lying. Actually, I panicked a lot. We had some epic standoffs at the beginning. He was energetic, thought he was king of the house, and I was a nervous owner. Kane would bite and nip and not pay attention to anything I said. My panicking was probably making him panic.
This month, he turns one, and now weighs over 100 pounds. But despite his size, he still tries to sit on my lap. Over the last year, the more we get used to each other, the calmer we've both become.
This was also the first time Jeter has confirmed he is engaged to Davis -- his proposal was reported last week.
And all together now: "awwww."
