Jeter’s farewell tourPosted: September 11, 2014
Two and a half more weeks left in Derek Jeter’s last season – unless the Yankees can make the postseason.
The Yankees’ hopes for one more playoff run may depend on this weekend’s series in division-leading Baltimore – four games starting Friday at 1 p.m. on MASN.

Jeter played at Camden Yards in the postseason of 1996 and 2012. Winning this series may keep his postseason hopes alive a little while longer.
