Gatorade Shows Derek Jeter Saying Goodbye To The Bronx

It’s the end of the baseball season, and with the New York Yankees soon to be mathematically eliminated, Derek Jeter will play his last games. This isn’t a surprise; Jeter announced in February that this would be his last season. All year, Major League Baseball, the Yankees, and opposing teams have honored Jeter in various ways. At times, the lovefest has seemed interminable, and cynics could make the point that the Yankees used Jeter as a marketing chip for a mediocre team. But Derek Jeter has been an iconic baseball player (probably the face of baseball) for nearly two decades, and you can’t argue with the impact he’s had on the game. In this fantastic Gatorade commercial, Derek Jeter takes a stroll thought the Bronx around Yankee Stadium, interacting with fans. It was shot in July before a home game, with a few blocks around the stadium being roped off. Jeter suggested the spot’s premise and musical backing of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”, which makes it even better.
