The Walk-Off

Sept. 25, 2014: In his final game at Yankee Stadium -- after a season-long farewell tour, which started before the season when Jeter announced 2014 would be his swan song -- The Captain says goodbye to the Bronx in grand style. In his first game ever at the Stadium with the Yankees not in contention for a playoff spot, Jeter makes it feel like October anyway, thrilling the crowd with a walk-off single to beat Baltimore. Afterward, he is greeting on the field by former teammates, gets doused with Gatorade, and walks to shortstop to acknowledge the fans.
