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.

Sabathia & Berra lend their voices to ‘Henry & Me’ C.C. Sabathia, Yogi Berra, Reggie Jackson, Alex Rodriguez, as well as other Yankees players, recorded parts for the upcoming movie, ‘Henry & Me.’ “Their message to the sick child “Jack,” the “Me” in the story: You can do it, kid. Just keep telling yourself you can, and you will.”

Ron Guidry and the Beach Boys:Guidry played the drums when he was with the Yankees, and he was skilled enough to perform once with the Beach Boys as a drummer in a post-game concert. But playing the drums also benefited Guidry’s pitching.”

“I kept a set of drums at Yankee Stadium for one reason,” said Guidry. “Playing the drums kept my wrists very strong, and a strong left wrist allowed me to throw my slider more effectively.”

Yankees and  Jay-Z team up on co-branded merchandise. From the AP: “The hip-hop mogul is teaming up with his favorite baseball squad on co-branded clothes that will be sold exclusively at Yankee Stadium beginning next week. All the items, from baseball caps to T-shirts and hooded sweat shirts, will feature Yankees and Jay-Z logos. In a news release Thursday, the Yankees said the attire was created to commemorate the first official concerts at the new Yankee Stadium on Sept. 13 and 14, when Jay-Z and Eminem will co-headline.”

    Jay-Z (Yankees fan) and Eminem (Tigers fan) made an appearance in the ESPN and YES Network booth during a game against the Detroit Tigers just a few days ago. Talk about a couple of weird interviews! The real reason they were there was to let their fans know that they will headline the first concert in the new Yankee Stadium. Before they do that, they will also be performing at Comerica Park on Sept. 2nd. These are two of the greatest rappers of all-time, and I’m sure tickets to these events will be a hot item.

    I’m not a fan of rap at all, but for some reason I really like Jay-Z and a few of his songs. He is a well known Yankees fan and was invited by the organization to do this special performance.

    I thought the song was pretty good, and I liked how everyone playing was wearing Yankee gear…except Alicia Keys. Haha. It certainly got the crowd going. Derek Jeter’s facial expression shown on the Fox broadcast as he watched them play was absolutely hilarious. It seems like the crowd and teams all enjoyed the performance. I think Jay-Z might have blessed the field last night.

    Jay-Z also had some words about the experience:

    “I felt like a kid,” he said. “The field is beautiful. I’ve never been that close to the field. Walking around, I jumped over the center-field fence and everything, like I was catching a home run.”

    “Jeter plays ‘Empire State’ every time he’s at bat. A-Rod does ‘Already Home’ and ‘Reminder,’ ” Jay said. “[Robinson] Cano does ‘Run This Town.’ It’s like the Jay-Z compilation at the stadium. It’s beautiful.

    “Incredible,” Jay added. “Beyond explanation. Just the whole fact, being in Yankee Stadium, really interacting, knowing the players. I grew up a fan of he Yankees — Reggie Jackson, Mickey Rivers, Chris Chambliss, God bless Thurman Munson, all these guys. To be there and interact with all these guys [the current Yankee team], they throwing the Roc sign up — it’s fantastic.”

    Here is John Legend’s rendition of our National Anthem. I think he did a great job as well:

    Jay-Z along with Alicia Keys will open up the festivities tomorrow night by performing the song “Empire State of Mind”  before Game#2 of the World Series.

    They were originally scheduled to perform tonight, but the inclement weather has pushed them back one day. A statement from Jay-Z and Major League Baseball reads: “The performance was changed due to the forecast for inclement weather for Wednesday, October 28.”

    “Staging for the performance could adversely impact the field if it is wet, creating damaged and unsafe playing conditions.” Jay-Z said of the performance, “As a die-hard Yankee fan, I’m honored to perform a song that celebrates the greatness of New York in one of our city’s most important landmarks, Yankee Stadium.”
