Quick Hit: The Mets Presented Jeter With Some Gifts

It’s okay to admit that I like the Mets’ parting gift for Derek Jeter, right?

They also had a cake!

The Mets also presented Jeter with a $22,222.22 check for his Turn Two foundation. Jeter joked with Mets’ COO Jeff Wilpon and asked if it was a check for $222.22. Oh Derek, you card.
