MR. NOVEMBER: The World Series went beyond October for the first time in 2001 because of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that put the season on hold for about a week. Game 4 of that matchup between New York and the Diamondbacks at Yankee Stadium started on Halloween night, but went to extra innings. After the clock struck midnight and the calendar flipped, Jeter hit an opposite-field home run off Byung-Hyun Kim to tie the series at 2 and become baseball's first Mr. November.
MO GOES: Mariano Rivera's last game at Yankee Stadium came last Sept. 26. With two outs in the ninth inning of what turned out to be a 4-0 loss to the Rays, Jeter and longtime teammate Andy Pettitte emerged from the dugout and strolled to the mound. It was a touching gesture, a symbolic pitching change designed to take Rivera out of the game and let him have one last long and loud send-off from Yankees fan. "It's time to go," Jeter told Rivera.
