During the song “The Schuyler Sisters,” which introduces the titular characters during Hamilton, the three sisters’ voices crescendo as they call New York City “the greatest city in the world!” Given that the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda peppered the entire show with references to his hometown, it’s no surprise to learn there are many nods to the city’s icons and history. But did you realize Derek Jeter himself gets a reference in this play that takes place in the 18th and 19th centuries?

Per MLB.com, a recent episode of “The Hamilcast” podcast featured show choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, who spoke candidly about his love for the New York Yankees. In fact, his love of the Bronx Bombers found it’s way into the choreography, which you can now see on Disney+, as the filmed version of the Broadway show went live over the weekend.

The number is “It’s Quiet Uptown,” which occurs in the second act.
