As Derek Jeter’s final season winds down, the Yankees hosted Derek Jeter day on September 7, 2014.
A slew of celebrities showed up for Derek Jeter’s special day, including past teammates such as Hideki Matsui, Mariana Rivera, Jorge Posada, former manager Joe Torre, and even fellow Nike pitchman Michael Jordan.
The Yankees organization gifted him with the 14 patches from his All-Star games in a frame, a massage machine, a 10-day trip to Tuscany and a commemorative crystal. The Yankees organization also made a $222,222.22 donation to Jeter’s Turn 2 foundation in honor of his uniform number.
