The legendary New York Yankee meets the people and soaks in the atmosphere of his final season.

The Derek Jeter Farewell Tour is wrapping up and even the strange souvenirs from opponents or any on-field awkwardness can't seem to diminish the league-wide celebration of the player's legendary status.
