Last night, Yankees legend Derek Jeter played his last game at Yankee Stadium, playing against the Orioles. In his final at-bat, he hit a walk-off single that won the game for his team. It was pretty incredible, and I say this as an Orioles fan. If you were watching the game, you may have noticed something funny: Underground rap star Action Bronson sitting directly behind home plate, maybe 30 feet behind Jeter, in one of the best seats in the entire stadium. How baller is that? And how did it happen? Has Bronson achieved monarch status in New York? Bronson, it’s worth noting, also appeared in a sort of beautiful new Nike ad that pays tribute to Jeter. In the clip, Bronson gets the same treatment as prominent New Yorkers like Jay Z, Spike Lee, Rudy Giuliani, Billy Crystal, Michael Jordan, and Mr. Met. Watch it below.
