Greatest Postseason Moments In New York Yankees History

7. Welcome To November Baseball

There is no drama quite comparable to baseball drama and this moment is a prime example of why.

In Game 4 of the 2001 World Series, the clock struck midnight for the first time in baseball history and Jeter started the month off right.

After battling closer Byung-Hyun Kim for eight pitches, Jeter drilled the ninth pitch over the short porch in right to officially claim the nickname “Mr. November” and tie the series up at 2-2.

Despite winning game five the next night, New York would lose to the Arizona Diamondbacks in seven games but the shot by Jeter would be one of the greatest moments in World Series history.
