On This Date In Sports History July 1st: Jeter Takes A Dive

On this date in sports history July 1st, 2004 Derek Jeter took a dive into the stands in the 13th inning against the Boston Red Sox. Now, this is one the most iconic moments of all time but I think it might have been just a tad bit over sold. Look, Jeter made a hell of a catch but did he REALLY need to dive? Nah.

Of course the fans of the Yankees went nuts about it. And for really good reason. Jeter was mister hustle. And with all the adrenaline I would have done the same thing. I would have dove into the stands.
