DEREK JETER WILL take his last at-bat later this year before bowing out of baseball for good.

The New York Yankees short-stop is midway through his final season with the MLB franchise and his sponsors, Nike, have pulled out all the stops to send him off in style.

As part of Nike’s ‘Re2pect’ campaign, a video has been produced in which famous Yankees fans, such as Billy Crystal, Jay-Z and Spike Lee, tip their caps to a man affectionately known as The Captain in N.Y.C. Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods also feature, as do supporters of the Boston Red Sox and New York Mets.
