Derek Jeter Rocked A Golden Thong To Get Out Of A Slump During The 2004 Season

Derek Jeter says he was slumping so terribly back in the 2004 season that he turned to none other than a golden thong to get him out of his rut...
The former Yankees captain made the surprising -- and hilarious -- revelation while playing a game called "True Confessions" with Jimmy Fallon and Rita Ora on Wednesday night's "The Tonight Show."
Jeter was forced to pick one of two topics, and his two cohosts had to guess if he was telling the truth or not.
"I once wore a thong, in public, in front of thousands of people," Jeter said.
Both Fallon and Ora thought it was a fib -- but the ex-NY shortstop said it was, in fact, a real tale.
Jeter explained ... back in 2002, he got a new teammate who swore up and down that wearing a golden thong would get him out of any slump.
Jeter initially thought it was a load of B.S. -- but at the start of the '04 season, he hit an offensive rut that he had never seen before.
"Every day I'd walk in, [my teammate] would point at the thong," Jeter said. "So, finally, I wore the thong."
First pitch of his first at-bat? Home run for Jeets.
"Yes, yes," Jeter said. "That is true."
