There are certain moments in life that you will always remember, and last night was one of them. In Derek Jeter’s last game in Yankee Stadium, the crowd went through an emotional rollercoaster of happiness, and sadness to watch one of the best hang up his cleats.
Although, Jeter holds a large amount of records for the New York Yankees, he has always separated himself from others with his inspirational work ethic, passion, and ability to be clutch in a time when the game is on the line. In a game where you have to be intense without being tense, Derek Jeter has always delivered, and influenced thousands of kids all over the world to love baseball.
Last night was a perfect ending to one of the greatest stories in baseball history. A man who is respected by so many, gets an opportunity to be clutch one last time. Bottom of the 9th, tied game at 5, runner on second, with one out and the crowd goes crazy to watch Derek Jeter’s last home at bat. First pitch fastball on the outside corner is hit into right field as Jeter finishes his career with a walk off single. Maybe it was the baseball God’s thanking him for years of passionate baseball, or simply Jeter doing his thing, but either way the captain went out on top. So thank you Derek Jeter for years of exciting baseball, and for being such an inspiration to all. You most definitely Fit the Mark!
