RE2PECT – The 30 People Who Tipped Their Hat to Derek Jeter

By July 18, 2014August 10th, 2014No Comments

In case you missed it, this week Nike aired a commercial right before Derek Jeter’s last All-Star at bat. The commercial shows fans, celebrities and other athletes tipping their hat to honor the New York Yankees captain who announced last year that this season would be his last. Even if you’re not a fan of baseball I think you can agree that this commercial is well done and a great honor to an athlete who has inspired many during his years as a Yankee.
With a little help from the Interwebs and the fine folks of Reddit we took the time to document all of the hat tippers in this classic commercial. Let us know if we missed anyone or any details in the comments below!
