You Pod to Win the Game
With Derek Jeter entering the Hall of Fame on Wednesday, it was only natural that "The Flip" was shown approximately 1,000 times on television and relived in written form to celebrate one of the defining plays of the New York Yankees shortstop's legendary career.
By now, you know the details. The A's were up two games to none in the American League Divisional Series but trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 3 at the Coliseum. That's when Terrance Long rifled a hard-hit ground ball over the first base bag. Right fielder Shane Spencer corralled the ball but overthrew two cut-off men. With Jeremy Giambi trying to score from first to tie the game, Jeter ran across the diamond, fielded the ball, and made a perfect backhand flip to Jorge Posada who tagged Giambi on the calf just before his foot hit home plate.
Of course, former A's manager Art Howe believes Giambi was safe. But he also knows that he likely would have been called safe had he slid.
"Where's replay when you need it?" Howe told ESPN's, Tim Kurkjian. "I really don't think he was out. I thought he tagged him on the back of his calf after his foot had hit the plate. But what are you going to do? Nothing can be changed. But they probably couldn't overrule it on replay. It has to be clear proof that it's one way or another before they overrule a play. I'll tell you that the umpire [Danley] called me after the game and told me if he slides, he's safe. But he didn't slide."
Jeter and the Yankees all maintain it's a play they practiced all the way back in spring training. What made the play so memorable was that it hasn't been duplicated and that Jeter's backhand flip was so unorthodox.
"I was thinking, 'Just get rid of it as soon as possible.'" Jeter told Kurkjian. "There really wasn't a lot of time to do anything else. That was the only way I could get rid of the ball in that time frame. It was just catch it and get rid of it in one motion."
"It felt like a second baseman flipping to the shortstop on the double play. He's a shortstop," Posada told Kurkjian. "The way he flipped the ball is not common for a shortstop. The accuracy and he had some hair on it for me to catch the ball."
The Yankees would go on to win the game 1-0 to advance to the American League Championship Series and eventually the World Series.
It's a play that Howe, despite his belief Giambi was safe, is certain you'll never see again.
As for Jeter, he knows the ump got the call right.
"Out! He's out! 100% he was out. You can't change it now," Jeter said. "It's kind of like the Jeffrey Maier home run [in the 1996 ALDS against the Orioles]. It's a home run. Whatever you want, but it's over now."
Derek Jeter headlined, but Marvin Miller, Ted Simmons and Larry Walker were also honored at the Hall of Fame.

Well before Derek Jeter hung up the cleats, it was a lock that he would earn a plaque in Cooperstown - the lone question was would the Yankee be a unanimous Hall of Famer.

Luckily for the Razorbacks, paper does not matter as soon as the ball is snapped.

Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum on Wednesday at its first ceremony in nearly two years. Baseball legends Larry Walker, Ted Simmons and Marvin Miller were also among inductees honored at the anticipated event.
"There is only one thing in my life that I wanted to be, and that was the shortstop for the New York Yankees. And now, I'm a Yankee forever, and without question you helped me get here today," Jeter told fans Wednesday. "There's a huge responsibility that comes with wearing a Yankee uniform, and just because you have it on doesn't guarantee you anything. You know, you have to earn it."

The induction ceremony took place on the lawn outside the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Fans were in attendance, along with legendary athletes like Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing and some of Jeter's former teammates, including Tino Martinez and Bernie Williams.
Jeter was the number 6 pick in the 1992 MLB draft and went on to play 20 seasons with the Yankees. During his run, Jeter accumulated 3,465 hits, scored 1,923 runs and had 1,311 RBI, ending his career with a .310 batting average, according to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The New Jersey native was a 14 time All-Star, won five Gold Glove awards and, as of his induction, had the sixth most hits in MLB history.
"I had one goal during my career and that was to win more than anyone else," the five-time World Series champion said. "And we did."
Former catcher Ted Simmons, MLB executive Marvin Miller and former right-fielder Larry Walker were also honored in Cooperstown.
Walker is the second Canadian to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame. "I share this honor with every Canadian," he said.

In 2020, the induction ceremony was canceled for the first time since 1960 due to COVID-19 concerns. The rescheduled event was postponed again in June so as to allow a limited amount of fans to attend. There were chosen for induction in 2021.
