After Gatorade Goodbye, Jeter Shows His Flair For The Dramatic For, Perhaps, One Last Time

It might have been the last one of his career. If so, it is right up there with all of the other great moments he has entertained his fans with throughout the years.  Thanks to R.A. Dickey's decision to throw a fastball last night, Derek Jeter showed off his flair for the dramatic for one of the last--and maybe the last time--in his career, when he connected for his fourth home run of the season--his first of the year at Yankee Stadium.

Innings later, thanks to Adam Lind's error in the bottom of the ninth, the Yankees won the game in walk-off fashion. A loss after what Jeter had done would have been very hard to take. A loss would have put a damper on an entire day devoted to The Captain--somewhat. The Gatorade commercial had the entire baseball world talking--and a lot of them crying--as Jeter continued to keep things in perspective during his farewell tour by keeping the focus on the fans. Have another look:



Just 10 more games until a career for the ages ends.  Cherish them, Yankees Universe.
