PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For the last few days, all fans of baseball paid homage to “The Captain,” aka Derek Jeter. The love spread all the way to Boston where the typical rivals of Jeter’s Yankees honored him in his final series against Boston.

Twitter was flooded with plenty of well wishes and memories for Jeter and one particular wife of a Red Sox player was not left out.

Talk about a coincidence.
