 (CNN) – Love him or hate him, Yankees star Derek Jeter will always have a place in baseball history, and Tuesday night, Nike will celebrate Jeter’s final MLB All-Star Game with a new commercial.

As the star short-stop steps up the plate, Nike’s Air Jordan brand, Jeter’s long time sponsor, will air the tribute commercial.

In the ad, fans, foes and stars give Jeter some respect by tipping their hats to the Yankees captain one last time.

Some of the high-profile folks in the commercial include Jay Z, Rudy Giuliani, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and even some of Jeter’s legendary teammates, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera.
