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.
