Derek Jeter Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter ended his professional baseball career on a high note, leading his Yankees to a victory in his final MLB game.

Playing against their biggest rival, the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees won 9-5 with Jeter hitting his 3,465th base hit — the most in the franchise's history — and earning his 1,311th RBI. After an emotional farewell in New York last week, the 40-year-old shortstop was on the lineup for his final game as a designated hitter. After he reached base on a single, he was replaced by pinch runner Brian McCann. Jeter hugged the Red Sox pitcher and then tipped his helmet to his Yankees crowd before going back into the dugout.

Jeter's final game comes 46 years to the day after another famous Yankee, Mickey Mantle, ended his career, also at Fenway Park.
