New York Yankees
While fans, non fans, kids and adult everywhere celebrated the legendary Yankees’ captain’s last hit at Yankee stadium, let’s take a look at the best reactions from friends of DJ, fellow athletes and other celebrates who took to Twitter to pay their RE2PECT to Number 2.
Derek Jeter didn’t want the night to end.
The Captain has just 11 games left in his illustrious Hall of Fame career, and the Kalamazoo native has been receiving a ton of attention on his “farewell tour” this season, rightfully so.
On Aug. 5, 2014 Joba Chamberlain plunked Derek Jeter on his left elbow with a 93 mph fastball.
Kansas City players tipped their caps to Derek Jeter when the retiring New York Yankees captain walked up to the plate in the first inning.
Detroit sent down Kyle Lobstein and brought up two other pitchers – reliever Evan Reed and starting pitcher Kyle Ryan.
Alex Avila hit an RBI single off the wall in right field with two out in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Detroit Tigers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Thursday.
On Wednesday night, the New York Yankees faced off against against the ever so dominant David Price and collected 9 consecutive hits in the third inning. Every Yankee in the batting order got a hit off of David Price last night at Comerica Park.
Price looked simply unrecognizable. He lasted just two innings and allowed eight runs on 12 hits – including nine in a row.
One of the best and best-loved players in baseball history, Derek Jeter resists the notion of his final season as a farewell tour.
