For all his millions, the New York Yankees shortstop can't go hang gliding, hot air ballooning or even play bocce ball, according to terms of his contract.

Mr. Jeter will make $20 million this year under his contract with the New York Yankees that concludes in 2010 with a salary of $21 million.

But he risks his salary for any period that he is unable to play if he were to be hurt while playing hockey or "any form of winter sport, whitewater rafting, motorcycle racing or chopping wood, among the many activities prohibited by his 2001-2010 contract.

The contract is at experience/ thematic_units/labor_history/jeter.pdf.

The Yankees' protectiveness may be understandable. This year, Mr. Jeter's 14th in Major League Baseball, the 35-year-old recently passed Ted Williams on the all-time career hits list.

Still, all those millions and he can't have any fun.
