I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but this Derek Jeter guy is retiring this year. Today is the Captain’s final game and while it isn’t at Yankee Stadium, it’s happening in the second best place, Boston’s Fenway Park. While the Red Sox and New York Yankees are bitter enemies it is a tremendous job by Boston to pay their respects to Derek Sanderson Jeter on the legendary scoreboard at Fenway Park.

Boston gave Jeter a parting gift of a special base.
Some famous Boston athletes wanted to be at Fenway and pay their respects to the iconic shortstop.
Even Red Sox players were getting their final selfies with Jeter.
