His name's Derek Jeter, not Michael Jeter

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jul 15, 2014

A CBS News Twitter account made a major mistake Tuesday night in marking the departure of future Hall of Fame shortstop Derek Jeter from his final MLB All-Star Game.

They tweeted this:

One problem...not only is it Derek Jeter, but there was a famous actor named Michael Jeter who is no longer with us.

The Twitterverse went wild.
