This Derek Jeter tribute commercial may make you cry

Derek Jeter is being honored in a new Jordan Brand commercial, leading up to his last All-Star Game as a player.

USA Today reported that the ad spot was released Monday and shows various fans tipping their hat at the Yankees’ captain as a sign of respect.

The ad features appearances by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Jay Z, Carmelo Anthony, Spike Lee, Phil Jackson and more.

Jeter got the commercial as a farewell after announcing that he would retire after the 2014 season. It aired on TV earlier this week.

Below is a vintage FOX8 story from 1993 featuring Jeter as a member of the Greensboro Hornets.
