For Jeter at Fenway, A Farewell Comes With a Warm Embrace
This season 11 MLB players finished with at least 30 home runs. In 2000, 47 players reached the 30-HR plateau.

Nice job by @VandyBaseball alums Sonny Gray and David Price today with a lot on the line. Just pointing that out for everyone.
Paulie put his family's names in the dirt behind first before he left today's game. #PK14

Wow RT @DCSportsNexus What a way to end the season a Jordan Zimmerman no hitter
Retweeted by Tyler Kepner
!!! RT @AnthonyDiComo Wonder if Jordan Zimmermann will buy Steven Souza the Rolex that Mike Baxter never received.
Also, Jeter's final career runs scored total will stand as 1,923. The Yankees won their first World Series in 1923.
Jeter improved his career average from .309 to .310 with that final hit, #3,465.
Ted Williams has the most career HR for a player who hit one in his last AB. Next on that list? @JimEdmonds, who hit #393 his last time up.
#Rockies RHP LaTroy Hawkins becomes the 16th pitcher in history to make his 1,000th appearance.

I mean for all the trite garbage we hear every year about the imminent death of baseball, there seem to be lots more people who like it now.
How on earth did Ted Williams' last game draw just 10,454 fans? People romanticize the past, but old-time attendance #s tell another story.
Thank u @mercbrownie for putting this great remembrance of a beautiful courageous lil lady!!… #teambrave #teamAriel

Extra Bases: Picking the 2014 Award Winners
Here's how to write a killer playoff-clinching game story. Great job by @McCulloughStar…
All but Toronto and Seattle. RT @MLB_PR: 28 of 30 MLB clubs have reached the #Postseason at least once since 2003.
@TylerKepner Tyler I will never forget the Mgr Gibbs telling me later in the yr in the Tampa Yankees dugout in Sarasota DJ will be a star!

Brewers retiring #1 for Selig. Other non-playing execs w/retired #s STL Gussie Busch #85, LAA Autry #26, Marlins Barger #5. Any others?
Great stuff here from @PeteAbe: What was it like to cover Derek Jeter? A few thoughts:…
Interesting to hear Girardi talk about how he wanted crowd to honor Kuroda last night, too, but Kuroda declined chance to walk out for top 9

ELIAS: Only one HOFer ended his career with a walk-off hit in his last home game: Lou Boudreau, in 1952.

Watching Jeter walk out to SS, by himself, after it was over reminded me of one of my favorite TV endings of all-time…
That was Jeter's first walk-off hit in more than seven years.
Robertson also had a blown save in Jeter's 3,000th-hit game. Jeter then drove in the winning run.
Derek Jeter has scored 1923 career runs. The Yankees won their first World Series championship in 1923.
Here's what inspired the PK curtain call before the game. It played on the video board.…

2 batters, 2 homers for the Orioles. #hashtagnumbertwo
The moment the "De-rek Je-ter" cheers rise up from the bleacher roll call, Nick Markakis crushes a HR to right. Awkward.
Grim outlook for Yankees fans. @TylerKepner lays it out in painful and plain detail:

"I don't know if anybody understands it, really," Vin Scully on the blocking-the-plate rule. "Ah, for the old days."
Take heart, Yankee fans, and enjoy this fun Jeter piece from @DavidWaldstein:
So the last game Jeter ever plays in New York, tomorrow night, will be the only one in his career in which the Yankees were eliminated.
This game (9/26/08) is the only one Jeter has ever played after the Yankees were eliminated:…
Yankees six outs from elimination from the postseason. But ease your troubles, folks. It's time for Cotton-Eye Joe.
Jeter's Stadium finale on Thursday could be the only home game in his entire career in which Yanks were already eliminated from postseason.

@TylerKepner Just PK being PK! Dude is a professional and will be missed! A RIDICULOUS career w/ no accolades! Humility is a lost gift!

Wow -- the White Sox score three off David Price to tie it in the ninth. Konerko with a huge two-out hit in the rally.
Felix Hernandez imploding in the 5th inning at Toronto. This is painful to watch.

But @pcaldera sounds even more like him. RT @markasaxon Frank Sinatra Jr. sounds a lot like the old man
And Jose Pirela rips a triple in his first at-bat! One and one and one is three....
If the Yankees' Jose Pirela really chose "Come Together" as his walk-up music for his first MLB plate appearance, Jose Pirela is the best.
