This new Derek Jeter commercial is set to air tonight during the MLB All-Star Game tonight. Much like last year’s Rivera tribute, tonight will be more like a “Derek Jeter Special” than an all-star game. All eyes on Derek.

Michael Jordan’s brand and Nike and have teamed up to launch the “RE2PECT” campaign in honor of Derek’s last season.
“After 19 seasons, Derek Jeter announced in February that the 2014 season will be his last. Widely recognized as one of the greatest ball players of all time, Jeter has led a storied and decorated career, with five championships, 13 All-Star appearances and enough individual awards to fill numerous trophy cases.
Although Jeter has become synonymous with his team over the past two decades, he transcends traditional rivalries and team loyalties. While No. 2 is known for his brilliant on-field performances, he’s always matched that with a quiet confidence, relentless focus, and deep respect for those he competes against.To celebrate Jeter, the mark he’s left on the game, and his relationship with the brand, the Jordan Brand kicks off the RE2PECT campaign. Baseball fans around the world can participate and share their support for Jeter throughout the season by tagging social media posts with #RE2PECT.
Jeter—handpicked by Michael Jordan in 1999—was the first Jordan Brand-endorsed baseball athlete. Outside of Jordan himself, Jeter is the longest-tenured signature athlete for the brand, and has been a great example to subsequent members of the Jordan Brand family.
“Derek is everything we hope for in a member of the Jordan Brand family,” said Jordan. “He’s the ultimate professional, dedicated to hard work, and driven by a desire to be the best. In short, he embodies all the key attributes of the brand.”
At the beginning of the partnership, Jeter was a rising star, and the Jordan Brand, which became a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike in 1997, was on a similar trajectory to establish itself as a major player in the world of sport. There were only a small handful of athletes associated with the brand, and Jordan stressed that his vision was to select a group of athletes comprising what the brand now describes as “the family.”
“We want there to be a mystique connected to being part of the Jordan Brand,”Jordan said. “Not something everybody will be involved with.”Today, although the family has grown, it maintains the same close-knit feeling Jordan envisioned when the brand was in its early days.”

One source told us: “Derek likes to keep his relationships quiet. In the past, when his girlfriends become famous and start doing sexy shoots, that’s when they break up. Exactly the same thing happened with Minka and Vanessa Minnillo.”
Another source said, “Derek and Hannah broke up a few months ago. She wasn’t at his Celebrity Golf Classic last month. He is in Tampa and is completely focused on being fit and ready for the upcoming baseball season.”
So, Derek Jeter doesn’t like his girlfriends to get “too famous.” That’s understandable. But why date some of the biggest and brightest of them all? Yeah, we get it…Hannah Davis is gorgeous. But if he wants to take his relationship to the next level..maybe he should stop going after the biggest Hollywood stars. Let’s take a trip down memory lane: Minka Kelly, Lara Dutta, Rachel Uchitel, Mariah Carey, Vida Guerra, Vanessa Minnillo, Jordana Brewster, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Adriana Lima, Joy Enriquez, Scarlett Johansson, Tyra Banks and Gabrielle Union.
Hannah might very well be announced as the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model in the issue coming weeks…not that Jeter cares. I’m sure he won’t have trouble finding another lady friend. Good luck, Derek.

That’s right. The New York Yankees have hit the Broadway stage. The show comes from the same creators of Broadway’s “Lombardi.” The story centers around Yogi Berra and his wife Carmen, as they take you through the New York Yankees storied history. Legendary players such as Ruth, Mantle, DiMaggio, Gehrig, and Jeter are portrayed on the stage. I’d bet this would be a real treat for any Yankees fan to attend, both young and old.
**If you’re interested in attending a show, visit: BronxBombersPlay.com or call: 212-239-6200 / 800-432-7250. Box Office Information: Hours: Mon: 10 – 6, Tues – Sat: 10 – 8, Circle in the Square Theatre, West 50th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue.**

Derek Jeter stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday and put on quite a show. He sat down for an interview and stuck around for a second segment to do a musical skit. If you haven’t noticed already from his pre/post game interviews or the press conferences he’s held, Derek’s got a great sense of humor.
What we learned:
- Derek Jeter is willing to host SNL again if Fallon is involved.
- He once allowed Fallon to pick up the tab in a club..costing him $2500.
- Fallon once accidentally kissed Michael Jordan on the lips at one of Derek’s parties.

Last week, Derek Jeter held a pregame press conference with the media prior to the team’s game against the Blue Jays. This was the first time he addressed the media after reinjuring his left ankle. When asked if he’d return to the ball club this season, his response was, “no doubt.” He seemed to answer a lot of questions with that same answer. He went onto say, “when you have doubt, that’s when you’re in trouble.” He didn’t want to make any promises on when he would exactly return, but the general consensus is that it will be after the all-star break.
Derek was upbeat throughout the entire interview. He was cracking smiles and making jokes, so it was nice to see him in good spirits. A media member brought up Derek’s “Advanced Age” and said that maybe that’s why this injury occurred, but Jeter insisted it was just a freak thing. If there’s a player out there that hates sitting on the bench, it’s Derek Jeter. We all know about his great work ethic, his dedication to the team and his will to win. There was another question asking whether he would be able to return to form prior to the injury. Derek responded that he fully expects to play at the same level as he did before. At this point, Jeter is still in a walking boot and remains months away from his return. There wasn’t any real groundbreaking news throughout the conference, but the most important thing you saw was that Derek was very positive about his return.

It’s just amazing how these stories come about. One can simply release a doctored photo of the Yankees captain to the media and everybody eats it up. Did anyone actually believe that “The Derek Jeter” would lose himself like that? If there is one guy in this league who you can count on to act in a professional way, he would be the one. If you really believed that photo was real, I wouldn’t be placing any bets anytime soon. But if you knew from the get-go, I would go hop on over to The Sports Geek. It took Harold Reynolds to set the record straight once and for all with this photo:
