Derek Jeter Thanks New York with a Touching Letter

So powerful.

Derek Jeter pulled the ultimate Derek Jeter move on Thursday. Fans who were lucky enough to be in attendance for his final game at Yankee Stadium received a letter from the Captain himself, addressed to New York. The words are so perfectly Jeter's in honesty, selflessness and appreciation. If you're anything like us, you'll read it at least ten times.

It's reasons like this that made Bob Costas wax poetic about Jeter's career.
