The Yankees general partner and sister of current Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner challenged the Yankees captain to take the Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday morning to raise awareness and donations for ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Jeter of course, answered the challenge and completed it on Tuesday night before the team's opening series game at Yankee Stadium against the Houston Astros. The 40-year-old Jeter had help from fellow teammates CC Sabathia (who completed his earlier in the day) and Masahiro Tanaka. Jeter had also been challenged by former Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens aside from Steinbrenner-Swindal.
In the video, Jeter challenged Michael Jordan, Hannah Davis and Kevin Connolly to take the challenge. Jeter is now one of several Yankees to do it along with Sabathia; Shawn Kelley completed his challenge last week down in Baltimore.
