The Mets Give Derek Jeter a Pretty Sweet Retirement Gift

Jeter

As far as the biggest Uncoached move in baseball this week, it’s gotta be the retirement gift given to Yankees captain Derek Jeter.  While Jeter’s year is turning out to be one that Yankees fans might want to forget from a statistical standpoint, the man’s giving baseball teams around the country reason to honor him and beef up their attendance each time he visits their stadium.

As a very smart and gracious token of their appreciation of all that Jeter has brought to the game of baseball, The Mets organization have so far given him the best retirement gift out of all the teams in MLB.  Yesterday Jeff Wilpon presented Jeter with a custom made #2 piece of artwork.  It’s a simple, yet thoughtful present as the number 2 is made up of NYC subway tiles.  Classy move if you ask me.

The Mets also donated a check for $22,222.22 to Jeter’s foundation.  Nicely done Mets.  Would be nice if your payroll were that small.
