Sox fans have something to say about Jeter billboard over Fenway Park

BOSTON – The Red Sox-Yankees Rivalry is historic, but a new billboard featuring New York legend Derek Jeter has Sox fans shaking their heads.

The famous shortstop stares down at fans from behind the Green Monster to promote a seven-part ESPN documentary, “The Captain,” which focuses on the five-time world champ’s career.

And Red Sox fans have plenty to say about it.

“He’s got a great career, great legacy in New York, but has no place in Boston. That’s all I’ve got to say about that,” said one Red Sox fan.

“I’m not a big fan of Derek Jeter. I hate his guts so much,” said another fan.

Some fans, however, are willing to cut Jeter some slack.

“Probably get another Yankee over the last 40 years and I won’t like it, but Derek Jeter is kind of a classy guy,” admitted one fan.

Jeter played his last game at Fenway Park in 2014, but a lot of fans say it feels like sandpaper scraping their skin as they approach the ballpark.

“I think he doesn’t deserve to be in Boston,” said a fan. “Maybe in New York but not here.”
