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.
