Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was the latest to take the ice bucket challenge to raise money for ALS research.

These ice bucket challenges are getting a little played out, though the increased visibility has helped raise well over $20 million to date for ALS research. But when Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter takes part, it carries a little more weight.

After all, Jeter is the Yankees captain just like Lou Gehrig, who succumbed in 1941 to the awful disease that commonly bears his name.

Jeter had the ice water dumped on him by Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia, which makes one wonder if some other teammates were available other than the two disabled pitchers each making well over $20 million per season.

In addition, all that ice water was dumped smack dab in the middle of the Yankees clubhouse. Perhaps a room with better drainage and no carpet, like a bathroom shower area, might have been a better choice.

Jeter challenged Michael Jordan, swimsuit model Hannah Davis and Kevin Connolly aka "E" from "Entourage" to complete the ice bucket challenge next.
