Few athletes have had the impact on sports and pop culture like the Captain of the New York Yankees, Derek Jeter. In this his last season as the team’s short stop and star he has received gestures from fans of his and opposing teams, kind words from those that have worked with him and baseball players across the league. But, today the greatest gesture yet came in the form of a commercial by the Jordan Brand.

In the commercial  fans, fellow players, his family and NY celebrities that include Billy Crystal, Spike Lee and Carmelo Anthony all tip their hat to the captain in the same way that he adjusts his hat when taking the plate.

After two decades it will truly be the end of an era and an emotional end at that, but no other Yankee is more deserving of a grand farewell than no. 2, Derek Jeter.
