Jeter Turns Tables
We've become very accustomed to the Yankees farewell tours over the past two seasons. First with Mariano Rivera and now with Derek Jeter, every team in the majors has lined up to show their gratitude to some of the best to play the game.
However, on Sunday in the Bronx, Jeter turned the tables. He presented White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko with a signed base, signed by the entire team. Konerko is retiring at the end of the season.
Konerko has been a quiet and unassuming superstar for the past 16 years. He's a career .281 hitter who has belted 432 homers. He's a six-time all-star and helped the White Sox win the 2005 World Series title.
Classy move, Yankees.
