Farewell Captain

Farewell Captain


Derek Jeter’s final home game was not only a big moment for New York and Yankees fans, but to tons of athletes in different sports. In a player that is in the same esteem as Michael Jordan, Jeter is a role model not only for baseball players, but for athletes and everyday people too. The game last night was the highest viewed show on the YES Network in its history. Over 2 million households in the New York area were tuned in. Here are some of the #RE2PECT tweets saying goodbye to Jeter.
