For those lucky enough to attend Yankees Captain Derek Jeter’s final home game, the farewell scene was indescribable. Tens of thousands gathered in a 21st century sports cathedral to witness the final pinstriped chapter of a 20-year career no doubt guided by the baseball gods. How else can one explain how New York’s rain-soaked skies miraculously gave way to a game-time rainbow and the storybook drama that unfolded in the ninth?
Fortunately, for those who wish to re-live the evening, FOX Sports 1 presents, DEREK JETER: A NIGHT 2 REMEMBER, a cinematic journey through his final home game as a New York Yankee. Produced by Major League Baseball Productions and FOX Sports Originals, the special 30-minute program premieres Monday, Sept. 29 (7:30 PM ET).
Throughout the day and evening of Sept. 25, Major League Baseball Productions had an exclusive look at Jeter at Yankee Stadium, and along with elements from YES Network’s extensive coverage and that of MLB Network, a gripping mini-documentary that chronicles Jeter’s final home game, and its Hollywood script ending, has emerged. DEREK JETER: A NIGHT 2 REMEMBER is a must-see original work featuring previously unseen images that pays tribute to a once-in-a-generation baseball hero’s final hours in his beloved home uniform.
