Derek Jeter will start at shortstop for the American League All-Star team for the ninth time, his 14th overall and final All-Star Game. No one will argue Jeter’s belonging in the All-Star Game itself, although his .272 average isn’t the best season he’s ever had, obviously.
As he starts his final All-Star Game and eventually hangs them up after this year, Nike has released a commercial honoring Jeter. The advertisement is called “Re2pect” and features Billy Crystal, Jay-Z, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods among others tipping their caps to the Captain.
We tip ours to you, too, Derek.
