Jeter hits RBI single in his final at-bat
Derek Jeter is a narrative machine. The catch.
The World Series winner.
Even in his final season, Jeter didn't stop. He hit a walk-off single in his final at-bat at Yankee Stadium:
On Sunday, in his final Major League game at Fenway Park, he somehow managed to do it again.
Before the game, Jeter met with Pete Frates, the man whose battle with ALS inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge:
Was gifted a No. 2 bag from Dustin Pedroia:
And made sure to get a selfie with Joe Kelly.
Joe Kelly's wife was particularly impressed:
When I was 12, I thought I would marry Jeter. Instead I married the guy that took a selfie w/ him during his ceremony pic.twitter.com/3BrkWBQHgy- Ashley Kelly (@ashleynicokelly) September 28, 2014
In his last at-bat, Jeter hit an infield single for his final hit and RBI.
Jeter's final tally now stands at 3,465 regular season hits, good for sixth all-time. Though that's ignoring his record 200 postseason hits. Dude could make contact like nobody's business.
Hope you enjoy retirement, No. 2. We'll miss you.
Oh stop, you're making us blush.
