B1G product placement win in Derek Jeter’s moment

You really could not have scripted the home finale for New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter any better. Jeter hit a walk-off base hit against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday night in the final game he will play in front of his home crowd before heading to retirement. It was a magical moment for baseball, and one that must have Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany beaming.

Huh? What?

Check out that legendary product placement for the Big Ten in what could easily go down as an iconic image of a baseball immortal.

“New tradition begins,” seems somewhat fitting as well.
