Derek Jeter Hits a Walk-off in Final Home Game
It doesn't get any better.
It doesn't get any better than this. It really doesn't. First the rainbow over Yankee Stadium, and then this. In Derek Jeter's final game at home, he came up to bat in the ninth, with the winning run at second and the game tied. And there was never really any doubt about what would follow.

And the reactions from his peers? Incredible.
