Jeter announced his retirement from Major League Baseball in February, and has 11 games left of the regular season, with a slim chance of making one last appearance in the playoffs.

Providing the team miraculously beats the Kansas City Royals in the race for the second American League Wild Card spot, Jeter’s final home game at Yankee Stadium will be on Sept. 25 against the Baltimore Orioles.
