Derek Jeter Gift Meter: Seattle Mariners

The Seattle Mariners had Derek Jeter's Major League debut in mind while planning their farewell gift to him.

In addition to a personal gift of an engraved wristwatch from Robinson Cano, the Ms presented Jeter with:

1. A seat from the old Seattle Kingdome

2. A base from Safeco Field

3. A check for $5,000, made out to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation

Analysis: It was very cool of the Mariners to honor the fact that Seattle was where it all began--and, in a sense, ends--for the Captain.  It was also nice to see Mariners players from throughout Jeter's career during the presentation: Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Felix Hernandez and Cano.  Very nice touch, all around.

Rating: On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being garbage and 10 being perfect--  9

Up next: The Oakland Athletics
