ST. LOUIS -- In a pregame ceremony, the St. Louis Cardinals gave Derek Jeter cuff links that bear Stan "The Man" Musial's likeness and a check for $10,000 for Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation.

The ceremony, which took place behind home plate, featured a number of Cardinals personnel, including Ozzie Smith and Red Schoendienst.

The ceremony included a tribute to the 1964 world champion Cardinals, who beat the Yankees in that year's World Series. This trip is only the second time the Yankees have been back to St. Louis since that Fall Classic.

Jeter has now received seven gifts. On Sunday, the White Sox honored him with a Yankees bench made of bats, balls and bases, shortstop dirt from Old Comiskey Park and $5,000 toward his charity. On Tuesday, the Cubs handed him a No. 2 white-and-green square that fell off the Wrigley Field scoreboard. The Mets gave Jeter a No. 2 mosaic designed with subway tiles and donated $22,222.22 to the Turn 2 Foundation. The Houston Astros gave Jeter a pair of Yankees cowboy boots, a cowboy hat and some golf lessons. The Los Angeles Angels gave Jeter a paddleboard. The Milwaukee Brewers donated $10,000 to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation and presented him with a bronzed bat.
