CBS News Mistakenly Calls Derek Jeter 'Michael' During Final All-Star Game

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistJuly 15, 2014

Derek Jeter was the biggest storyline of the 2014 MLB All-Star Game. After all, it was the New York Yankees shortstop's 14th and final All-Star game of his 20-year career.

Given the situation, it's hard to fathom how CBS News made a glaring mistake when tweeting out a story about Jeter. It was just an honest mistake, but with all of the attention that Jeter has received leading up to the game, it's pretty funny.

Twitter went wild with the mistake:


Could this be Michael Jeter?

But no, it wasn't Michael Jeter taking a final bow.
