There were many emotional moments during Derek Jeter’s final home game at Yankee Stadium Thursday night, but the most adorable was a simple tip of the cap from his young nephew.
Little Jalen was there in the stands and watched as his famous uncle hit the walk-off single that would end his reign in the Bronx.
The Captain’s biggest fan grabbed the brim of his Re2pect cap and tipped it to Jeter. It’s a moment you can watch over and over again.
Jeter plans to play three more games, but Thursday night was his last at shortstop.
When the Yankees head to Fenway Park in Boston, Jeter plans to be the designated hitter.
