Former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter attends BYU-Michigan game

Derek Jeter may have become a legend in New York, but there's just as much love for the former New York Yankees shortstop in his home state of Michigan.

Jeter visited Ann Arbor on Saturday prior to the noon kickoff between the Wolverines and BYU in the Big House. Jim Harbaugh presented Jeter with a personalized Michigan No. 2 jersey, the same number he wore in his 20-year career as a Yankee.

MGoBlog's photographer Brian Fuller captured the moment on the sidelines:

Jeter grew up and attended high school in Kalamazoo and drew attention from Michigan's baseball program, which offered him a scholarship to play college baseball for the Wolverines

We all know which path Jeter decided on, but it's still great to see Jeter hasn't forgotten his Michigan roots.
