Derek Jeter responds to fans booing Yankees brass


After a boisterous hero’s welcome during his return to Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter thanked Hal Steinbrenner and Brian Cashman – to a crowd of jeers.

During Jeter’s Hall of Fame celebration Friday, Yankee fans initially showered Steinbrenner with boos while he walked out with a massive check for Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation.

Even the Yankees legend’s thanks afterward for Steinbrenner and his family were met with a mixed reaction among the crowd

In response, Jeter scanned the stadium before his face turned to a grin.

“Let me tell you something. You better cheer, trust me,” Jeter said to engage more of a positive reaction. The Bronx faithful then grew louder.

Jeter thanked Cashman right after. The crowd wasn’t friendly toward the Yankees general manager either.
