Derek Jeter will soon end his professional baseball career. But it's clear which occupation he should take on next:

Hollywood screenwriter.

The future Hall of Famer played his final home game tonight (and his final game overall at shortstop), finishing with three runs batted in, one run scored and, oh, the GAME-WINNING SINGLE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH.

Jeter rules

In truly ridiculous fashion that no one could possibly have seen coming, closer Dave Robertson blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth, seemingly putting a damper on Jeter's final appearance in the Bronx...

Derek Jeter will retire at the end of the 2014 MLB season, and with the year's halfway point upon us, tributes to the legendary Yankees shortstop have begun rolling in.

Earlier today, Nike unveiled a 2-minute commercial set to air during Tueday's All Star Game in which fans ranging from Spike Lee to Carmelo Anthony to a group of begrudgingly respectful Bostonians all tip their caps in tribute to El Capitan.

A group of Mets even join in the show of respect. Fortunately, their faces are digitally blurred so as to keep their lockers un-vandalized by teammates.

"We looked at the weather patterns and I just decided to make the move for today," General Manager Brian Cashman told ESPN. "Derek was scheduled to DH in Scranton, so I figured, he could DH and sit around in the rain in Scranton, or he can DH and sit around in the rain in the Bronx. We chose the Bronx."

Derek Jeter, the captain and starting shortstop for the New York Yankees, fractured his ankle in the 12th inning of the American League Championship Series opener this evening and will miss the remainder of the postseason.

Which, at this rate, will last approximately three more games for the Yankees.

Sportsman of the Year

Following a record-setting, game-tying home run by Raul Ibanez in the bottom of the ninth, the Yankees offense once again sputtered and couldn't push anyone across the plate over the next three innings.
