In a surprise appearance at last night's ESPYs
, Ben Affleck — wearing his wedding ring
— emerged to present New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter with the Icon Award in recognition of his career.
Ben joked, "If you're from Boston, you always wanted to hate our next honoree," before launching into a laudatory speech that singled out Jeter's class, dignity and grace.

"He broke my heart a hundred times, if not more," Ben joked of Jeter. "He broke it again when he retired, because he was absolutely one of the very best to ever play the game of baseball."
