Derek Jeter‘s farewell tour continued this evening at Progressive Field in Cleveland and the Yankee captain walked away with some pretty cool gifts.
Jeter’s former teammates, Jason Giambi and Nick Swisher, Indians manager Terry Francona and team president Mark Shapiro were on hand for the occasion. Jeter was presented with a LEGO mosaic of his first career home run as well as a pinstriped Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, a fitting gift with Cleveland as the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Check it out below.
Wayne Peltz, the visiting clubhouse manager for the Indians, is the man behind the LEGO mosaic. He’s pretty well known for his work and has sold a number of pieces to players. You can check it out the Jeter mosaic in more detail below.
Great work. Sure, the whole farewell tour thing can get a bit tiresome, but Cleveland brought their A-game here. Well done.
