The Napa Valley was the theme Sunday when the Oakland Athletics paid tribute to Derek Jeter.
1. A customized 3-liter bottle of Abreu Madrona Ranch Cabernet--2009.
2. A private tour with the winemaker.
3. A stay at the Meadowood Resort in Napa Valley.
4. A check for $10,002 to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation.
Analysis: This presentation has originality written all over it. Also, the classiness of the wine angle fits perfectly with the classiness of Jeter. As for the check, I'm a little confused as to why they added the extra two dollars. If they wanted to include the "2," why not put it next to the dollar sign?
Rating: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being garbage and 10 being perfect-- 9
Twins and Indians up next!
A side note: I'm sure everyone has heard about Jeter's new fundraising drive, Spend Game Day With Derek Jeter. If not, the Captain is giving you a chance to do just that. Click here for all the details.
