Remember this one? In the long, amazing career of the New York Yankees legendary Captain, this was one of the greatest moments. It was the heart of the Yankees dynasty of the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it appeared the Bronx Bombers - American League champions four of the previous five seasons - had met their match. Billy Beane's Moneyball A's had won the first two games of the ALDS on the road in Yankee Stadium, and trailing just 1-0 in the seventh inning, what they hoped would be the series-winning rally was on. With Jeremy Giambi on first base, Terrence Long ripped a line drive down the right-field line. As Giambi rounded third base, outfielder Shane Spencer's throw sailed over two cutoff men, causing Giambi to dash home with what he expected to be an easy score. Not so fast! Out of nowhere - where no shortstop had been before - Derek Jeter arrived to snag the errant outfield throw. With the instincts of a cat, Jeter side-flipped the ball the final 20 feet to the plate to a ready Jorge Posada, who then swept a tag onto Giambi's leg to record one of the most miraculous outs in baseball history. It was a game-saver, a series saver, and an A.L. championship saver, all in one unprecedented move! And that, in a nutshell, was the greatness of The Captain! From the world's leading sports photography publisher, Photo File Inc., this is a premium-quality, licensed 16" x 20" print, reproduced from the original source on professional-grade photographic stock, and complete with 2001 ALDS logo, Captain Forever logo, and MLB Properties holographic label for authenticity. A beauty for the wall of any fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come!
