The Derek Jeter farewell gifts start out with boots and a hat

I feel like the Texas teams have it way easier than a lot of other teams when it comes to giving gifts to retiring legends. Texas’ history and culture just give it far more unique-to-Texas symbols amenable to gift-giving than, say, Cleveland has. Someone needs a gift? Ah, heck, just give ’em boots and a hat:

Which has to sort of stink for the Rangers. The best idea was taken by the Astros.

I suppose a box of steaks will do. Assuming Kansas City doesn’t scoop them on that.
