Ct Patriot: So tonight was it, the final home game of the last of the core four. As a life long Yankees fan since as far back as I can remember. This is a sad day, the end of an era. Not just for the Yankees but for all of sports. I remember hearing about a draft pick one summer. A sixth pic in the draft, some skinny kid, a shortstop. Then came then end of the 1995 season. That’s when i first got to see this “kid” play on the big stage. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who noticed this kid was different. And starting the next year with the great championship run and improbable comeback against the seemingly unbeatable Atlanta Braves. It just seemed Jeter was always in the right place at the right time. Always came up with the big hit, or big play. Now this week we have all heard from his detractors. He didn’t do this, He didn’t do that…They chew on his stats over and over. Like that’s all there is to being a winner. I say to them “shut up”, now is not the time. It’s not about you Douchebag. So 5 Championships and 20 years later it comes to an end. I am pretty sure we will never see another Derek Jeter in NY sports. To have it all and not let it destroy you. To have it all and still be grounded and to give back. To act with class. I will always be thankful for the great memories.
Good luck #2
Derek Jeter Has Game-Winning Hit in Final MLB Yankees Home Game
With one out in the ninth inning and a man on second base, the 40-year-old Jeter singled to right to break a 5-5 tie and end an evening that was an extended toast to the Yankees shortstop.
“Don’t cry,” Jeter said he was thinking as he stepped to the plate in the ninth inning. “I was all messed up.”
