Pettitte, Roger Clemens and Mike Stanton, all former teammates and all Houston residents, joined Jeter on the field to present the gifts
What does Jeter needs gifts for?
I would appreciate this is Jeter said make a donation to a local charity in my name.

Where does this end? Who qualifies for gifts from their opponents? It looks like the more money you made in your career the more gifts you get. It's like corporate CEO retirment plans.
Real fans are far too classy for such behavior, as demonstrated by the standing ovation Jeter received in Houston. Only at BBTF are the haters represented in significant numbers.
Agreed. Not sure why this is upsetting people so much. Even if you don't like the guy, who cares, a small event before the game starts, isn't going to ruin your day.

it's lame to give sometimes expensive, meaningless, unappreciated gifts to extraordinarily wealthy players from opposing teams.
You seem to be thinking that anyone who recognizes the absurdity must also be "hot and bothered about it." There are more landing places than that.

It's even lamer to get all hot and bothered about it.
