Against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter recorded the 3,465th—and final—hit of his 20-year career.
Jeter knocked in a run on an infield single against Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz in the third inning. And with that, his legendary career was over.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi waited for word from Jeter as to whether The Captain wanted to call it a career at that point. Once Jeter signaled that he was done, Girardi sent Brian McCann in to pinch run at first base.
Jeter received a standing ovation from the Fenway Park crowd and both dugouts. As he left the field, Jeter acknowledged everyone in the ballpark with a tip of the cap.
Red Sox fans have rooted against Jeter for the past two decades, but they put the rivalry aside for the day to honor one of the greatest players to ever play the game.
Here's the final plate appearance of Jeter's career:
