On May 29, 1995, Derek made his MLB debut with the Yankees in a game against the Mariners. He was only the ripe age of 20, but now 20 years later, he can confidently walk off the field of Yankee Stadium one last time knowing he not only made a great career for himself, but also that he has changed the face of baseball.
As fans gathered to see the legendary Derek Jeter play one last home game, the baseball star showed his love by waving to fans, tipping his hat and standing by the dugout taking in the love one last time before heading onto the field in what would turn out to be a very eventful farewell.
After the Yankees had blown a large lead against the Baltimore Orioles, they found themselves scurrying to gain back the lead in the ninth inning.
Out comes Derek ready to take back his stadium during his final moments of the last home game. And he did just that. With one swing of the bat, he slapped his trademark single to right field, sending Antoan Richardson sprinting toward home plate — giving the Yankees and their fans a dramatic game-winning 6-5 triumph over the Baltimore Orioles!
Talk about the perfect ending to this fairytale career!
Though Derek may have started out with one true love — baseball, now the famous shortstop is putting his glove away and heading straight into the arms of his new love — Hannah Davis, 24.
During Derek’s final farewell to fans, Hannah was beaming from ear to ear as she showed a little PDA with the pro baller, who was the star of the night!
And as Derek took his final bow, Yankee Stadium erupted in love for this incredibly talented man. You don’t need to be a true Yankees diehard to understand that the famous #2 will be missed in the game of baseball. But it was Hannah who was by his side hugging him on the field in front of thousands of fans.
Now, Derek can focus on the next step in his life — possible marriage and kids? We can only hope!
