Derek Jeter uses phony name 'Philip' to get coffee at Starbucks

Being New York's most recognizable sports celebrity didn't stop Derek Jeter from trying the the old phony name ruse to pick up a cup of coffee at a Starbucks Wednesday afternoon.

The Yankee shortstop was spotted yesterday leaving one of the coffee chain’s locations in Greenwich Village with a cup suspiciously marked with the name “Philip,” reports The New York Post.

The Yankee captain may have been trying to go incognito as he picked up a cup of joe but even his horizontally-pinstriped T-shirt couldn't throw off the over-caffeinated hipsters.

Good thing he wasn't wearing his walking boot — that would have been a dead giveaway.

It wouldn’t be the first time he’s operated under an alias, so it must have worked before.

In 2007, The Smoking Gun Web site published a bill that showed the currently injured baseball star used the pseudonym “Johnny Drama” — an apparent reference to the HBO show “Entourage” — to check into a Seattle hotel with his teammates.

Next time he should go with his middle name — Sanderson.
