MILWAUKEE -- The latest of what will be a season-long procession of testimonials to Derek Jeter concluded Sunday with a big bat and an even bigger check.

As the crowd in Miller Park gave him a standing ovation, Jeter was presented with a bronze replica bat, and a check for $10,000 made out to his Turn 2 Foundation.

Jeter was greeted at home plate by Brewers Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez after a video presentation that included tributes from former teammates Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds, both of whom now play for the Brewers, as well as Kyle Lohse, Andrew McCutchen and Jake Peavy.

Jeter has announced he will retire after this season, his 20th in major league baseball and with the Yankees. In his final visit to two previous cities, Jeter was presented with a cowboy hat and boots in Houston by the Astros, and with a paddleboard by the Angels in Anaheim.
