What An Amazing Ending For Derek Jeter (VIDEO)
A very emotional night last night at Yankee stadium as Derek Jeter played his last game in pinstripes, and it could hardly have gone better. His last at-bat, in the bottom of the ninth, was an RBI single that gave the Yankees a 6 to 5 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Jeter had a monster game throughout the night. He hit an RBI double off the wall in his first at-bat, then scored a run. And in the 7th inning he grounded into a fielder's choice that scored TWO runs thanks to a Baltimore throwing error.
Former teammates Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte and Tino Martinez and ex-Yankee manager Joe Torre lined up near the dugout to congratulate Jeter.
The Yankees didn't make the playoffs, but they do have a series against the Red Sox in Boston this weekend to finish out the season. Jeter said he probably won't play shortstop, though. He'll just be the designated hitter.
