Justin Morneau may have swiped the AL MVP from him, but there’s one thing the Twins’ slugger can’t take from New York Yankees Shortstop Derek Jeter, and that’s the cover of 2K Sports' annual baseball game.
Jeter will grace the cover of Major League Baseball 2K7, making this the third straight year he has done so for the series and triggering an avalanche of “triple-play” references from sports and game journalists everywhere.
It’s quite an honor for the former GQ Man of the Year, cologne purveyor, and second-best shortstop in New York. “It is a real privilege to represent the premier MLB title in the video game industry,” says Jeter. “Just as I am always striving to improve my game, 2K Sports is constantly improving theirs, and this dedication has made Major League Baseball 2K7 the best MLB video game ever.”
