Jeter takes Ice Bucket Challenge, passes to Jordan
NEW YORK - (AP) -- Derek Jeter has been doused inside the New York Yankees' clubhouse after accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge and dishing off to Michael Jordan.
Jeter was sitting on a chair placed on the Yankees logo in the middle of the carpeted locker room when injured New York pitchers CC Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka dumped a large container of ice water over his head Tuesday before a game against the Houston Astros.
The 40-year-old captain, wearing a T-shirt, shorts, socks and sneakers, grimaced and yelled at the top of his lungs before jumping up with a smile to hug his laughing teammates.
Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo captured the video on his cellphone, and the Yankees provided the footage to MLB.com before tweeting out the link.
