Derek Jeter just played in his last All Star Game. He announced back in the fall of 2013 that this would be his last season. . The crowd at Target field gave him a standing ovation when he was announced and then when he came up to bat. When his turn was over and he had to let the backup shortstop take over, he received another ovation from the crowd including the other All Star players who represented various teams in MLB.
Derek Jeter is a class act and a good role model for kids in sports. He never had a fight on the field, never got ejected by an umpire, never took drugs or enhancement products, he was never suspended and so forth. He played by the rules and represented his family well who never missed a game he played in. He will be missed by New York Yankee fans and all fans of baseball.
His American league team won the game researving home field advantage for the World Series. Perhaps Jeter play in that as well and win his sixth ring?
