Jeter’s Last Game at Yankee Stadium


If anybody knows me, they know Derek Jeter is right next to Robinson Cano as my favorite baseball players, so knowing this will be Derek Jeter’s last season in the MLB has been tough to swallow.  For 20 years, Jeter has represented the Yankees and all of New York in the best way possible, continuing to pave the way for a successful Yankee legacy.  Last night, Jeter played his last game in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium and you couldn’t have written a better ending to Jeter’s career.  Watching the Yankees play without Jeter will take some getting used to, but, regardless, he will always be part of Yankee history.  I just feel honored to have watched him play myself.
