I’m not sure how Suzyn Waldman treated last nights pregame ceremony, but Roger Clemens was in the building folks. Clemens was joined by Andy Pettitte and members of the Astros ownership group to present Derek Jeter with his first farewell present. What did they decide to give the Captain? How about a custom pair of cowboys boots. I’d say there is roughly a 0% chance you will ever see Jeter wear these things.
Both Clemens and Pettitte are native Texans, who spent some time in their careers in Houston. But neither will ever be remembered for wearing an Astros jersey. Clemens, who played for 4 different MLB organizations, might be remembered most for his days in pinstripes. Although he may have had greater overall success elsewhere, for better or worse, this is where he really left his mark for his on and off the field actions.
Pettitte, spent much of his career with Jeter and together make up half of “The Core Four”. I’m sure this won’t be the last time we see Pettitte taking part in a ceremony honoring Jeter this season. Let’s just hope next time he has something better to present than a pair of boots.
I wonder what lucky lady Jeter was “knocking boots” with later that night. See what I did there?
