He may not have won MVP (that honor went to heir apparent Mike Trout) but retiring New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter stole the show at the 85th All-Star Game Tuesday.
Cameras followed Jeter’s almost every move at his final Midsummer Classic from when his name was read during lineups to when he took a curtain call to a standing ovation. The Yankee shone on the field too, leading off the game with a double and and scoring as part of a three-run inning.
Most importantly, Jeter did what he always does, quietly helping his team win the game. Well, as quietly as they would let him.
