MLB All-Star Game: Derek Jeter singles in final at-bat

Rob Carr

Jeter moved into second place in All-Star Game history batting average and on-base percentage with his third-inning single.

It wasn't quite as impressive as his first-inning double, but Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter notched another hit in his final All-Star Game at-bat, lofting a bloop single into right field to lead off the third inning.

With the hit, Jeter finishes his career 13-for-27 in All-Star contests. His .481 batting average and .517 on-base percentage are second to only Charlie Gehringer, the longtime Detroit Tigers second baseman who hit .500 and got on base at a .655 clip in 29 plate appearances. Jeter is also tied for fifth all-time in All-Star Game hits, behind only Willie Mays, Stan Musial, Ted Williams and Nellie Fox.

Jeter was stranded at second after Mike Trout hit a loud flyout to left field followed by Robinson Cano's strikeout and Miguel Cabrera's inning-ending lineout. The 40-year-old superstar was replaced by White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez in the top half of the following inning and received a massive ovation from fans, teammates and opposing players.
