Live Updates: Will Derek Jeter's Final Game At Yankee Stadium Get Rained Out?
As we noted yesterday, Derek Jeter's final game at Yankee Stadium is in danger of being rained out, with little chance of it being rescheduled. Not even the majestic, beautiful, one and only Captain Jeets can force the Orioles to return to the Bronx unnecessarily. The hearts of many Yankee fans hang in the balance, as does a ton of money.
UPDATE: Looks like it's going to be a go, with about a 10 percent chance that the game will be called off. See below.
