In His Final At Bat in Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter Was Stabbed Through the Heart With a Trident. JK He Got a Walkoff Hit
A lot of things have to happen to have a perfect moment. You need the perfect scenario (meaningless game), the perfect people (Buck Showalter, who managed Jeter his rookie year, didn’t intentionally walk him) and the perfect setting (Yankee stadium, where else). All those things happened last night, as Derek Jeter played his final game at Yankee Stadium, and in his final at bat, hit an opposite field single that scored the winning run. Some people are saying it was a meatball, and it was, but if a 20 year career that includes 5 world series rings doesn’t deserve a last at bat meatball then I don’t know what does. You don’t have to love him, you don’t have to hate him, but you do have to re2pect him.
