It’s one of those things you’re just not looking forward to. But alas, this really is Derek Jeter’s final season. The Yankee great announced that he will be retiring following this season. Derek is one of the most talented and respected players in baseball and this respect reaches far and beyond just the love from New York.
Nike captured this beautifully in a new star-studded tribute ad to Derek Jeter.The commercial features appearances from Jay Z, Billy Crystal, the Core Four of the Yankees (Andy Pettite, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada), and even a few Mets players and Red Sox fans.
Tip your hats to the Captain. Re2pect.
