Houston Astros Team Shop at Minute Maid Park Loaded with Derek Jeter Gear

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is now in the final season of his 20-year career, so we can expect a lot of opposing teams to pay homage to the Yankees captain in their own way.

It looks like the Houston Astros are going a little over the top in honoring him. The Yankees opened the 2014 MLB season in Houston, so the Astros loaded the team shop at Minute Maid Park with Jeter shirts.

There's certainly no harm in honoring a legend like Jeter; however, stuffing the racks at the official store with another team's apparel just to make a buck may not go over too well with the home fans. 

The Jeter farewell tour has begun.
