The accolades and tributes continue to pour in for Derek Jeter but now the Yankees shortstop is even getting a special sendoff by The New Yorker magazine.
The literary publication is giving Jeter a very special farewell with its Monday cover featuring The Captain tipping his cap in his pinstriped No. 2 uniform.
As a companion to the splendid color image, there is the cover story written by Roger Angell, the brilliant sports writer who is considered among the greatest baseball journalists in history.
"S'Long Jeet" is the senior editor's short vignette about what the future Hall of Famer meant to the game.
As the warm days for Jeter wind down, and the Yankees faithful find it hard to believe the season will be followed by chilly nights this October, the elegant cover is a nice parting gift to all baseball fans.
