Jeter's final game

We did it everybody! We made it through the Derek Jeter retirement tour. Yesterday was Jeter’s final game. Give yourself a pat on the back if you made it through without rolling your eyes.

Don’t get me wrong. Jeter was a tremendous player, and he will deservedly be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. But let’s be honest, his farewell tour was a little over-the-top. So a great many people—myself included—are glad it’s over.

I’m not a monster, though. I still got goosebumps watching Jeter’s final game. The guy got to decide exactly how and when his career ended, and when he made the call he got a standing ovation from Boston Red Sox fans at Fenway park. No matter what you think about all the farewell shenanigans, you have to admit that’s pretty special.

Take a look at the last play of Jeter’s career:

Of course, that wasn’t the only highlight of the day. Before the game the Red Sox held a lavish 20-minute ceremony featuring gifts, special appearances from Boston sports legends, and at least one Jeter Day selfie.

Here’s a video showing the selfie, starring Jeter and Boston pitcher Joe Kelly:

And here’s the tweet from Kelly’s wife, Ashley, that won the internet:

As for the rest of the ceremony, you can check out the short version here, along with all the other highlights from Jeter’s last game:

Or, if you’re a hardcore Jeter fan, you can watch the entire pre-game ceremony right here:

Hell of a nice career, Jeter. Enjoy playing shuffle board and eating dinner at 4:30 in the afternoon.
