David Ortiz needed just two words to describe Derek Jeter’s final game at Yankee Stadium, which ended with a walk-off single from none other than the retiring New York Yankees shortstop.
“That’s him,” Ortiz said.
The Boston Red Sox slugger has nothing but respect for Jeter, who he has played against in some of the most defining moments of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. But the two might not get one last rematch in at Fenway Park.
A reporter jokingly told Ortiz that Jeter said he wouldn’t play at Fenway for this weekend’s series if the big Boston designated hitter, who’s battling a wrist injury, wasn’t in the lineup.
“So he’s not gonna play then,” Ortiz said.
