On May 14, 2017, Derek Jeter’s #2 jersey will become the last of the Yankees’ single digits to be retired. The honor cements the captain’s legacy as one of the team — and sport’s — greatest players. Congratulating Jeter on his jersey retirement, Michael Jordan wrote him a personalized note.
As a hat tip to Jeter’s incredible career, #jordanbrand takes over a bodega directly across from Yankee Stadium at 880 River Ave on Sunday, May 14. The pop-up features a commemorative RE2PECT capsule collection that includes a special edition hat and tees along with other #jordanbrand accessories.
To celebrate Jeter’s love for the game, the brand is inviting local community members to participate in a stick ball game they’re hosting in the Bronx prior to Sunday’s Yankees game.
Jeter, who played twenty seasons in New York, set a new standard for others to follow. RE2PECT began as a salute to one man’s epic career, but will now expand across the whole #jordanbrand family, who will continue to carry forward the mantra in the pursuit of greatness on and off the field.
