The Importance of Being Derek (Jeter) – The Yankees/Devil Rays, July 28, 2013

by Stephen Jones

A homerun of stadium emotion
And Yankee dugout celebration

It didn’t win the season or game
But maybe it infused a team

The wild card is still a battle uphill
But maybe now is pinstripe-possible

It took one swing of the bat – crack!
To remind us: Derek Jeter’s back

    Not only did it take one swing, it was on the first pitch that he saw….WOW! Who could have predicted that?

    Doesn’t guarantee that the Yanks’ season will turn around, but what a nice little lift!
