New York Yankees: Derek Jeter’s Tame Gift from Oakland A’s

The Oakland A's showed their appreciation for Derek Jeter's career by giving the New York Yankees shortstop what can be considered a tame gift as compared to most of the things he has gotten.

Oakland, which was represented by former Yankee turned A's hitting coach Chili Davis and manager Bob Melvin, gave Jeter a bottle of 2009 Cabernet and more importantly, a donation to his Turn 2 Foundation in the amount of $10,002.

Tame or not, it's quite an extraordinary thing to see all of these teams showering Jeter with gifts. After all, he can afford a 2009 cabernet just by showing up to practice, but it's the thought that counts.

Not to mention, all the money being raised for Jeter's charity is going to a great cause and will have more value to Jeter than any ridiculous gift ever could.
