Last night, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter hit a walk-off single to win the team's last home game for the 2014 MLB season. As we all know, it was also Jeter's final game in Yankee Stadium, as New York's long-time captain will be retiring at the end of the year.
The night couldn't have been more perfect for Jeter. The rain had held off and the stadium was roaring with the game tied in the bottom of the ninth. With one man on second, Jeter slapped a single into right field to pick up the final RBI of his illustrious career in the Bronx, and was immediately mobbed by his teammates. It's one of those moments you'll always remember as a baseball fan, even if you hated Jeter and the Yankees.
However, if you've been a fan of Jeter since he first came to bat for the Bombers in 1995, then this night was probably overwhelming for you. Such was the case for Shaun Morash, a producer for the CBS Sports radio show Boomer & Carton and a lifelong Yankees fan who reflected on the moment while speaking on-air this morning. His voice cracking, Morash recalls the memories of growing up with Jeter and watching him play, and mourns the end of Jeter's days in pinstripes.
"It's all gone. It's all gone now," said Morash.
Boomer and Carton give Morash some good-natured ribbing as he breaks down, playing Frank Sinatra's "My Way" in the background for increased dramatic effect. Later in the clip, they read tweets from the show's fans who disparage Morash for welling up.
We won't put Morash completely on blast for shedding a few tears. Again, it was a momentous occasion. At the same time, though...
But, hey, don't worry, Shaun. You weren't alone.
