After a long week of work, terrible Bulls basketball, and baseball blogging, I'm exhausted. So, this will be a shorter post. Earlier tonight, Kris Bryant hit a long homer (449 fit) in his first at-bat at Fenway Park.
As I was thinking about how cool that would be to experience, I remembered that Derek Jeter's last at-bat came at Fenway. 36,879 fans—a mix between Yankees and Red Sox supporters—saw Jeter crack his 3,465th hit on September 28, 2014. Jeter was quite bad in his final season: .256/.304/.313 in 145 games.
As I was searching for Jeter footage, I came across Ted Williams' final at-bat at Fenway Park—a home run—on September 29, 1960. 10,454 fans were there to see the 41-year-old legend hit the 521st homer of his career. Williams played 113 games in his final season. His OBP? .451.
