Rule 5 pick Adam Stern, a Red Sox bench player, got his first hit tonight in the 8th inning in the Red Sox lopsided win and Derek Jeter realized he had, retrieved the ball, and gave it to the Boston bench.

 

"It was pretty cool," said Stern. "Those guys are superstars out there and it's great for someone like that to recognize a first hit."

 

Say what you want about Jeter, im his crtic and heckler often, but I have and always will respect what he does for the game and how he conducts himself on the field. Very classy Derek.

This is not a special occurence, for a player to throw the ball in the dugout, it happens all the time. It's not especially classy.

The ball wasnt going to be kept though, Jeter realized it, stopped, made sure it went in the right place.

 

I saw it live, as a Red Sox fan I thought it was a big deal...

Clearly, the man is a saint. :whistle

 

Just because it was in a game between the Red Sox and Yankees, doesn't make this pretty routine act any more newsworthy.

From the sound of the article Passion posted, it sounded like the ball was in jeopardy of being thrown to the side (or to a fan or somewhere else equally losable) and Jeter made sure it was saved.
