Report: Oheka Castle party not for Derek Jeter

Yankees captain Derek Jeter announced in February that 2014 would be his final season in baseball.

Derek Jeter has five World Series rings from his stint with the New York Yankees, and it looks like he's holding off on adding a wedding ring.

TMZ Sports reported Friday that Jeter would be at a “massive” party at Oheka Castle in Huntington this weekend that could be a secret wedding to girlfriend Hannah Davis.

But on Saturday afternoon the website said that although a wedding was taking place at Oheka, it was for a Crunch gym franchise owner from Florida.

A member of the Oheka hotel staff told Newsday Saturday morning via phone that even if anything were planned for Jeter, they couldn’t comment.

Autograph hounds Greg Elson, 27, of Huntington, and Evan Helfgott, 21, of Smithtown, spent several hours driving around the castle Saturday, with hopes of catching up with Jeter and other Yankees.

“I brought, like, eight baseballs with me,” Helfgott said. “Because if Jeter's here, everyone will be here.”

Elson said they were “very disappointed,” but they suspected that the rumor was too good to be true. Usually they do a lot of research to get celebrity autographs and the TMZ tip seemed too easy. 

The two recently attended Joan Rivers' funeral, and Elson boasts that he recently got Hillary Clinton's autograph.
