Tigers’ retirement gifts for Derek Jeter: a set of old Tiger Stadium seats and three paintings

Aug 27, 2014, 8:59 PM EST

Derek Jeter‘s retirement tour continued Wednesday in Detroit with another set of gifts …

The paintings were of new Comerica Park, old Tiger Stadium, and Jeter’s high school field in Kalamazoo, Michigan — about two hours west of Detroit. Jeter also got dirt from the high school field. Pretty cool.

    And nine straight hits against David Price. Thanks Tigers.

    Sounds great…………Jeter is a class act!

    No, not just from his high school field. In fact, soil from each of the three fields, affixed to their corresponding painting

    As a team, I detest the Yankees. But Jeter is a class act.

    I am a Tigers fan and life long Michigan resident and I know this is irrational and probably makes me a terrible person, but as long as someone wears pinstripes, I absolutely loathe them. I know, it doesn’t make any sense, but I’m sorry. I hate Derek Jeter. Bring on the thumbs down, my normal rational self would do it too.

      Hating Jeter-san is like hating your dad, so yeah, guess it’s fine.

        I think I got over my irrational hatred for my father right around the time I stopped being a whiny teenager. My irrational hatred for the Yankees will always endure
