Warning: This Derek Jeter All-Star ad will give you serious goosebumps



Nike’s Jordan brand—one of Derek Jeter’s longtime sponsors—rolled out one fitting tribute to the famed, career-long Yankee shortstop, just in time for his 14th and final MLB All-Stars Game Tuesday night. The chill-inducing 90-second ad starts with an at-bat introduction by the late, great Bob Sheppard and gives way to a parade of salutes to the retiring legend from opposing teams (that’s Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester kicking things off), big-name athletes (Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan) and plenty of notable New Yorkers: off the bat, we spotted Billy Crystal, Jay Z, former NYC mayor Rudy Guiliani, Knicks’ forward Carmelo Anthony, director Spike Lee and, most touchingly, Jeter’s former Yankees manager Joe Torre and ex-teammates Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and Tino Martinez. Watch the full spot and tip your own cap to one of baseball's most beloved players—yes, you should be grabbing the Kleenex right about now.
