Mariners vs Yankees Series – June 10th & 12th, 2014

This past week, New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter said goodbye to Seattle. Well, at least in a Yankees uniform. After announcing his retirement, this will be the last time he plays in Seattle (unless the two team meet in the playoffs, fingers crossed!). Yankees fans showed up in busloads. Although this is normal whenever the team plays in Seattle, it was a little different as a majority of the fans were sporting Derek Jeter gear and holding “Goodbye Jeter signs.”

I feel privileged that I had the opportunity to photograph the future hall of famer over the past 4 years while photographing the Seattle Mariners and I wish him luck in his future endeavors.

Below are a few of my favorite images from the two games I covered last week between the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees including a few extra of Jeter.

Tomorrow night will be the last time I have the opportunity to photograph this guy, Derek #Jeter,  playing #baseball. I feel grateful that I had the chance to do so over the past years. #2 #yankees #ny #mlb #photography #retirement
