Jeter’s First Home Run: 4/2/96

Since today is the 18th anniversary of Derek Jeter‘s first big league home run, I figured I’d post it.

If you don’t remember, here’s the set up. It was Opening Day in Cleveland, April 2, 1996, Jeter steps in to bat in the fifth inning against then future Hall of Famer Dennis Martinez and…

The coolest thing about this home run, in my opinion, is Phil Rizzuto‘s “Holy Cow” call.
