Derek Jeter's Iconic "Dive" is 12 Years Old

July 1, 2004.

Yankees vs. Red Sox.

A crucial game for the AL East rivals.

Extra innings.

That was the scene for one of the most iconic moments of Derek Jeter's career. A 12th inning Trot Nixon pop-up looped to short left field would set the stage for this:

After diving into the stands along the left field foul line at Yankee Stadium, Jeter emerged from the seats bloodied and bruised to the joyful roars of a boisterous, sell-out crowd. The Yankees won the game courtesy of a John Flaherty walk-off.

Oh, and of course Jeter was in the lineup the next night.


This play, "The Dive" as it came to be known, has been immortalized in the form of photographs, which Jeter has signed and a collage with a piece of the outfield wall from Old Yankee Stadium.
