Jeter always played his heart out.
He went headfirst into the stands and came up bruised and battered.
But that didn’t matter to him.
He gave it his all every day, especially on that play, and he pulled off one of the most amazing catches you’ll ever see in baseball history.
The fact that it was a Yankees vs. Red Sox game made it all the more special.
Jeter didn’t care if he got hurt on that play.
He just wanted to do whatever it took to make the play and help the Yankees win.
That’s what made him so great.
Yankees fans will always remember how Jeter gave his all for them and the city of New York on a daily basis.
It didn’t matter what the score was.
The Captain was always focused.
