Derek Jeter Nearly Brought to Tears During Final Postgame Interview in New York

Stephen Douglas

Derek Jeter finally cracked. Jeter recieved his millionth career standing ovation after his final game at [new] Yankee Stadium. Jeter hit a walk-off game-winner in his final at-bat in New York. It was a storybook ending (minus the postseason) worthy of someone who has been (no snark) such a big part of Major League Baseball for the last two decades. The coverage and the farewell tour have been over the top, but this was a nice moment and you can understand why Jeter might have felt just a tad bit emotional.
