Derek Jeter Played The Final Game Of His Two-Decade Career In A Rivalrous Matchup Against The Red Sox!
It's the end of an era.
The shortstop finished his 19th season with the Yankees in a fated match up against rival team the Red Sox.
Derek got his final hit, his 3,465th hit, we should say, during the third inning of yesterday morning's game. His four-digit hit tally makes him the sixth highest hitting player in the history of the game, so it's safe to say that baseball lost a great one yesterday.
Derek played his last home game in New York last Thursday, beating the Orioles 6-5.
The 40-year-old won't just be missed by his team, which he's been the captain of since 2003, but he'll also be remembered by the entire sports community; including Gatorade who gave him this incredible send-off after nearly two decades in the game.
The Yankees beat the Red Sox 9-5. Not a bad way to wrap things up.
