Greatest New York Yankees Moments In All-Star Game History

2014: Saying Goodbye To An Icon

This is not the last time you’ll see the Captain on this time capsule of a slideshow but for those who watched this live, it was the last time they would see Derek Jeter  take part in an All-Star game.

If you did not know, this guy is always about the moment. This guy always has a flair for the dramatic and in his final All-Star game at Target Field, it was no different.

The captain went 2-for-2 with a double, a run scored, and even an impressive stop at shortstop before leaving in the top of the fourth to a long ovation.

On the second pitch Jeter saw, he smoked a line drive down the right-field line off St. Louis Cardinals’ Ace Adam Wainwright for a double. He’d come in to score on a Mike Trout triple the very next at-bat.

Then, in the bottom of the third, the 14-time All-Star slapped a single off Alfredo Simon to give him 13 career hits in 13 career midsummer classics to help him finish with a .481 career All-Star average.
