No. 2 would go on to notch a single shortly after the warm reception in what will be his last game at Comerica Park unless the Yankees meet the Tigers in October.
It was great to see from the Detroit crowd considering the Tigers are trying to stay ahead of the Yankees in the wild card standings and need to win every game against Jeter's team.
Even competition doesn't come before respect for Jeter.
Seeing your team play in the SuperBowl is priceless. Watching the SuperBowl live in the stands for $1 per week is beyond priceless.
