Jeter Gets Special Gift From Special Guest
The Derek Jeter farewell tour continued on Wednesday night as the Yankees closed out a three-game set with the Rangers in Arlington, Texas.
The Yankees lost the game 3-2 to put themselves 3.0 games back of the Blue Jays for the second wild card spot, but the real story came before the game, when, as is now customary, Jeter was presented with gifts on the field.
Jeter received cowboy boots with the Yankee emblem and his name, presented by former Rangers Pudge Rodriguez and Michael Young.
But he also had a special guest: Former President George W. Bush. Bush presented Jeter with a picture of the two from Game 3 of the 2001 World Series, where Bush threw out the famous first pitch in New York just a month and a half after the events of Sept. 11.
The photo had been in the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas.
