It’s Sendoff Sunday for Yankee great Derek Jeter as he says so long to baseball and the Fenway Faithful. So it’s not surprising that the local dailies have some parting gifts for the splendid shortstop who, as far as we know, never got a nickname.
From the Boston Globe, it’s a bouquet of stats – Jeter’s career relative to the Red Sox. (On the web here, but graphics not really working.)

Nice, but a little cold and calculating.
Crosstown at the Boston Herald, the sendoff is much warmer.
And the feisty local tabloid goes into extra innings, as Track Gal Gayle Fee tracks Jeter’s dating average.
Tip o’ the cap to the Herald on this one.
