Gossip Date: 14-07-2014

There is no denying he’s a legend not only in baseball, but in the world of sports. Earlier this year, Derek Jeter announced that he is retiring from the field and will end his run as a New York Yankee at the end of this season.

Although there is plenty of baseball to play this year, tributes for the 40-year-old athlete are already here. Jordan Brand, a subsidiary of Nike, released an ad titled “RE2PECT” featuring a number of famous names in sports and entertainment tipping their hats to Jeter.

Among those featured in the ad are Jay Z, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Michael Jordan, Carmelo Anthony, Billy Crystal and even a few Mets players, who remained unidentified.

Derek announced his retirement earlier this year with a Facebook post saying thank you to his supporters.

"I know they say that when you dream you eventually wake up," the five-time World Series champ wrote.

"Well, for some reason, I've never had to wake up. Not just because of my time as a New York Yankee but also because I am living my dream every single day…The one thing I always said to myself was that when baseball started to feel more like a job, it would be time to move forward."
