Derek Jeter hits first home run of final season

Harry How

The future Hall of Famer hit his 257th career home run on Wednesday night in Anaheim.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter played his final game in Anaheim on Wednesday night and, among other things, received a personalized surfboard as a retirement gift from the Angels before the game. Then in the second inning, Jeter did something he hadn't yet done in 2014.

The solo home run to left field off Hector Santiago of the Halos was Jeter's first home run of the year, and his first since July 28, 2013. It snapped a skid of 184 plate appearances without a home run for Jeter, the fourth-longest streak of his 20-year career.
