Derek Jeter’s final season as the New York Yankees shortstop has begun, and the first stop on the retirement tour was Houston.
The Astros presented the New York captain with a few retirement gifts Wednesday night, including special cowboy boots that feature Yankee pinstripes and the No 2. He also got a cowboy hat.
Similar to Yankees closer Mariano Rivera during his farewell season in 2013, Jeter is likely to receive gifts when he visits a Major League city for the final time.
Even though the Astros are now an American League team, this week’s series is the Yankees’ only trip to Houston this year.
Check out Jeter’s gifts from the Astros in the photos below.
