Don’t feel bad if you missed the final home game for New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter on Thursday. The amazing ending to Jeter’s 20-year career is most potent in the isolated video clip below.
Jeter’s final at-bat came as it would in a sports film from Disney: Bottom of the ninth, game tied at 5-all with one out and a runner on second. Legend steps into batter’s box at Yankee Stadium for what is likely his final appearance in font of the hometown fans. Then… BOOM! The 40-year old swings at first pitch, sending a liner to right field and scoring the game-winning run.
This kind of stuff doesn’t typically happen in real life.
