NYT: Sandomir: Let the Marketing of Derek Jeter’s Farewell Begin

The Derek Jeter farewell tour is coming, with the inevitable merchandising: caps and T-shirts with a Jeter-centric logo; dirt from his shortstop area packaged in vials; autographs; signed bases, balls, home plates and, well, almost anything else imaginable….The Yankees quietly kicked off the campaign within hours of Jeter’s retirement announcement. An email that hailed the coming season as his last offered this makeshift, Trekkian slogan: “Captain’s Final Voyage.”

Trekkian? or Whitmanesque?

at least he’s getting closer to Mahomes

Finally, Jeter's going to get the acclaim he deserves.

Well, in Jeterness, the Jeter of the Jeter is that we can Jeter about Jeter all Jeter long, but Jeter still Jeters Jeter.... You know? I mean, Jeter Christ, people.

Trekkian?


How about Trebekian? All tributes to Jeter must be phrased in the form of a question.

"Daniel Nava was cut from his college team and made it to the major leagues with the Red Sox via a twisting road that included stops in junior college and an independent league.

Yet when he encountered Derek Jeter on the field for the first time in 2010, the Yankees captain knew the story and made it a point to congratulate Nava and him well.

Those are the kind of moments Red Sox players will remember about Jeter, who announced on Wednesday that he would retire at the end of the season.

“That means a lot when it's your first time,” Nava said on Thursday after the Red Sox went through an informal workout at JetBlue Park. “There were a lot of rookies [on the 2010 Red Sox] and they all said the same thing, that he treated them great. That says a lot about the type of guy he is.
"

By all accounts, Jeter is a polite, respectful, honorable sort of fellow.

Crappy defense aside, Jeter really has been a fantastic 'face of baseball' type. The biggest scandal he has had was the gift basket thing and that is just funny, funny stuff.

The Yankees beat the Indians 4-2. Jeter was 0 for 5.

All Americans remember where they were when they heard.
