Yankee Captain Gets Curtain Call After Homering in First At-Bat
The great Derek Jeter, who unlike his teammate Who Must Not Be Named has never been accused of using illicit drugs to bolster his performance on the field, made a spectacular reappearance on the field Sunday after returning to the New York Yankees’ lineup for only his second game this year. He homered off of Tampa Bay Rays lefty Matt Moore in his first at-bat.
Jeter received a standing ovation when he approached the plate; he had only appeared once this season, on July 11, when he strained his quadriceps after missing the April, may and June due to a broken ankle.
After the home run, Jeter was called out from the dugout for a curtain call by the crowd.
