WATCH: Derek Jeter ensures young Yankees fan gets special souvenir

HOUSTON — At Thursday night’s game between the New York Yankees and the Astros in Houston, Derek Jeter was determined to make sure a young Yankees fan went home with a special souvenir.

However, the shortstop’s efforts were momentarily thwarted when an Astros fan tried to intercept Jeter as he reached to pass the ball to the young girl.

Many fans hoped to nab the baseball from Jeter, but he remained persistent in getting it to the young girl wearing the Jeter shirt.
