As baseball fans bid farewell to one of MLB's most gracious superstars, the impending retirement of New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter marks the end of an era. Jeter was the poster boy for the Yankees dynasty of the late 90s and early 2000s. New York's captain never let ego or personal glory sidetrack his ultimate goal of winning. No. 2 has become an iconic sports figure across the country and his retirement tour pays homage to the man, the myth, the legend. So the dog days of August unfold, fans can sit back and enjoy watching one of most exciting and humble players the league has ever known.
