New Commercial Pays Jeter Tribute

Derek Jeter
Legendary New York Yankees shortstop and future Hall of Famer, Derek Jeter, is now halfway through his farewell season.

Nike has seized upon this moment by creating a guest-star packed commercial which pays tribute to the five-time Gold Glove winner.

Last year’s MLB All-Star Game was used as a sort of tribute to then departing and beloved relief pitcher Mariano Rivera (also a Yankee), and another such tribute is expected for Jeter at this year’s All-Star Game on Tuesday.

The commercial shows an array of individuals, famous and otherwise, tipping their hats to the widely-respected Jeter; including Michael Jordan, Rudolph Giuliani, Jay-Z, and even (grudgingly) a pair of Red Sox fans.
