On this date in Yankees history: Derek Jeter has a grand old time

BRONX, N.Y. — On this date in 2005, Derek Jeter finally got off the schneid and did so in grand fashion.

Having accomplished everything imaginable in a Hall of Fame career to that point, Jeter still lacked a grand slam. Following 155 plate appearances with the bases packed, on plate appearance 156, the New York Yankees Captain and shortstop connected on the big fly.

Facing the Chicago Cubs and ex-teammate Joe Borowski, at Yankee Stadium, the 30-year-old All-Star shortstop drilled his first career grand slam to left-center.

Jeter’s grand slam was one of two bombs on the game and propelled the Bronx Bombers to an 8-1 victory.
