CBS screws up Derek Jeter's name in All Star Game tweet

Derek Jeter made his final appearance in a MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Everyone in the sports world knew that it was Jeter’s curtain call in the All-Star showcase, so there were a number of congratulatory tweets being sent out to honor “The Captain.”

When Jeter finally took his final steps off on the field, he tipped his hat to the crowd that that chapter of his career was finalized.

News outlets from around the nation where sharing their stories and headlines, but one major outlet made a huge and unforgivable mistake.

Somehow, the folks at CBS screwed up Jeter’s name and called him “Michael Jeter.”

Here is the proof:

Woof. Maybe the fact that Jeter is the longest tenured athlete with the Jordan Brand other than Michael Jordan confused the social media intern. Whatever the reasoning may be, he better find a good excuse fast or begin filling out job applications.
