Corn Maze To Derek Jeter: "Thanks, Captain Clutch"

If you've ever wanted to know what Derek Jeter's regal face might look like as a five-acre corn maze, today is your lucky day. A New Jersey farm decided that instead of some boring-ass corn maze for kids to get lost in—while their parents wonder how they found themselves at 45 years old, wasting 10 bucks and a crisp… » 8/17/14 6:49pm 8/17/14 6:49pm

The Rangers Brought Out George W. Bush During Jeter Farewell Ceremony

Since everyone knows this is Derek Jeter's last season, teams are putting on special ceremonies (like they did with Mariano Rivera) for Jeets, where they give him gifts and make donations to his charity.

Derek Jeter And Todd Frazier, Together Again After 16 Years

My jerk coworkers won't understand, but Derek Jeter does represent something to Yankee fans of a certain age. Like me! Over the course of his career, baseball players went from grown men I admired to people who are now younger than me. These two pictures, of Jeter posing with Reds 3B Todd Frazier 16 years apart,… » 7/16/14 2:40pm 7/16/14 2:40pm

Derek Jeter And Adam Wainwright Saved The All-Star Game

The silly, silly controversy over whether Adam Wainright gave Derek Jeter "a couple of pipe shots" is a great thing. Not necessarily the act itself, nor the discussion over it, in which people seem upset not that it happened but that Wainwright didn't lie about it, or even the immediate fallout, which will see more… » 7/16/14 9:45am 7/16/14 9:45am

All 100 Times Jeter's Name Was Mentioned On Fox—And All Zero Of Gwynn's

Lest you forget, Fox was sure to make you aware that this is Derek Jeter's final season in the majors. The Captain's name was spoken no fewer than 100 times on tonight's All-Star Game broadcast, but at what cost? That of remembering people like Tony Gwynn, Don Zimmer, or Bob Welch—none of whom were mentioned during… » 7/16/14 12:56am 7/16/14 12:56am

Adam Wainwright Had To Apologize For Saying He Grooved A Pitch To Jeter

This is insane. Adam Wainwright made a comment to reporters after his outing was complete that he grooved Derek Jeter a couple of meatballs. It was harmless. Then it became a thing because Derek Jeter has to get All-Star Game hits on the level? I literally have no idea. But then, Adam Wainwright showed up on FOX… » 7/15/14 11:43pm 7/15/14 11:43pm

Here's The Derek Jeter Farewell At The All-Star Game

John Farrell waited for the American League to take the field in the top of the fourth inning so he could remove Jeter from the game and give the crowd a proper chance to send off Jeter. It was a nice moment, Jeter tipped his cap (face) to the crowd, the players, and the coaches. He then went into the dugout and… » 7/15/14 9:57pm 7/15/14 9:57pm

MLB Network Host Told Trout Before Game He'd Triple Home Derek Jeter

MLB Network host Greg Amsinger spoke with Angels slugger Mike Trout during today's pre-game festivities, and jokingly told the All-Star outfielder that he'd come up to bat with Derek Jeter on second base—and hit a triple to drive home the Yankees captain. Sure enough, that's exactly what happened in the first inning. » 7/15/14 9:06pm 7/15/14 9:06pm

Communist Umpire Ruins All-Star Game On First Play

I'm sorry: is this, or is this not, Derek Jeter's night? Are we not saying farewell to The Captain tonight? Someone better get the umpires on board then, because on the second goddamned pitch of the game, Derek Sanderson Jeter went to his motherfucking left and snagged a rocket off the bat of Andrew McCutchen. He then… » 7/15/14 8:35pm 7/15/14 8:35pm

Royals Fans In Cat Singlets Give Derek Jeter The Tribute He Deserves

The Derek Jeter Farewell Tour has thus far proven itself to be a breeding ground for fan-made signs that make us want to vomit. So it was refreshing to see two weirdo Royals fans, either knowingly or unknowingly, poking a little fun at the whole spectacle and building a tribute to Jeter around matching cat singlets. » 6/09/14 12:11pm 6/09/14 12:11pm

Dumb Question About Derek Jeter Drives Radio Host To Breaking Point

This is Bruce Drennan, a Cleveland sportscaster who hosts a call-in radio show called All Bets Are Off. During yesterday's show, a guy—a plant? an actual yokel?—called in and asked Drennan if he thought there was any chance that Derek Jeter might end up on the Indians. Much exasperation ensued, as did a mock… » 4/01/14 2:19pm 4/01/14 2:19pm
