10 Years Ago This Spring

Derek Jeter shares a friendly moment with Tony Tarasco during a 2014 Yankees/Nationals Grapefruit League in Tampa.  The two will always be linked by Jeter's home run in the opening game of the 1996 ALCS, when young fan Jeffrey Maier snatched Jeter's fly above the right field fence before Tarasco had the chance to catch it -- turning what could have been a routine out into a memorable home run.  A home run that led to victory in a post-season capped by the Yankees first championship since 1978.
