Derek Jeter announced in February that this season would be his last playing Major League Baseball with the New York Yankees, and now that he's nearly halfway through it, the farewells are already beginning. Nike [1] paid tribute to Jeter with a "Re2pect" ad that features all kinds of baseball fans and celebrities, including Jay Z, Billy Crystal, Michael Jordan [2], and Tiger Woods [3], tipping their hats to the star athlete. Jeter's been with the Yankees since he was drafted out of high school in 1992 and started playing for the team in 1995, and no matter how you feel about the polarizing team, you can't help but be impressed by his two-decade career. Watch the video above.
