With the San Diego Padres battling the New York Yankees in the Bronx this week, it appears Hunter Renfroe is trying to imitate one of the best players to ever suit up for the 27-time champions.
Although Renfroe doesn't play shortstop like Derek Jeter did in his illustrious career, he still tried to replicate his famous jump-throw from the outfield.
Several habits from Jeter elevated his status as the face of the MLB during his prime. However, the most common play that left fans in awe was his ability to gun down runners with his arm strength.
The current generation of shortstops often try to perfect the jump-throw when they're in the field. Yet, it's quite to see an outfielder attempt the difficult throw.
Well, it's fitting that Renfroe went for the flashy throw while playing at Yankee Stadium.
Renfroe didn't make a very smooth throw, but he did cut off the ball before it hit the gap to keep Cameron Maybin from reaching second base.

It'd be interesting to hear what Jeter would have to say about Renfroe attempting the jump-throw from the outfield.
As for the game, the Yankees lead 3-0 over the Padres in the series finale.
