As if the Derek Jeter showcase/all-star game wasn’t enough drooling over the hall of fame shortstop, the New York Yankees have announced they will be sporting patches to commemorate the captain’s final month on player hats and uniforms. Also, Major League Baseball has agreed to print Jeter logos on the baseballs at Yankee Stadium for the rest of the season.

Starting Sept. 7Jeter month officially begins in New York, and Steiner Sports is expecting to cash in. Steiner has reportedly locked Jeter into an exclusive deal during his final season, with game jerseys going in the $25,000 range.

This may come as shock, but unfortunately it probably wont. MLB & the Yankees have been throwing Jeter parties all season long since spring training, its only fitting that the home crowd will get the tackiest and most over the top good bye to the beloved captain.

Although it’s a bit flashy and worship-like, I enjoy every second of celebrating the career for the Yankee legend of our era. He’s made the number 2 so iconic, we’ve accepted it being in the middle of words! #RE2PECT
