His name's Derek Jeter, not Michael Jeter

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:
Michael Jeter takes bow at his final All-Star game http://t.co/pjKV5CUvv9— CBS News (@CBSNews) July 16, 2014
Just in case CBS takes that tweet down...SG for posterity pic.twitter.com/v9dxw9yAaW— Phil Hecken (@PhilHecken) July 16, 2014
One problem...not only is it Derek Jeter, but there was a famous actor named Michael Jeter who is no longer with us.
@CBSNews Michael Jeter. Great actor. But dead since 2003.— Mike Brewer (@MikeBrewer44) July 16, 2014
The Twitterverse went wild.
