"Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, and that’s the way baseball is."- Bob Feller
"It’s an honor and it’s a privilege to be here. To the guys and the younger guys that are getting an opportunity to come to their first [All-Star Game] … enjoy it because, you know, I can tell you that firsthand that this is a fun experience. You should share it with your family, your friends, remember it. You don’t know how many of these you’ll get an opportunity to play in. More importantly, remember every time you put your uniform on because trust me, it goes quickly."

Respect. More than any other emotion, that’s the feeling Derek Jeter has commanded throughout his 20 years in Major League Baseball. As the Yankees shortstop enters the halfway turn of his farewell season, Nike’s Air Jordan brand (a longtime sponsor of Jeter) has released an incredible commercial to celebrate his final year.
#RE2PECT: There’s enough basketball in this to be applicable for the site. Plus, all the chills.
Happy Birthday, Captain.
