This series is notable for a defensive play in the seventh inning of Game 3. With Oakland leading the five-game series two games to none, on the verge of completing a sweep, the Yankees took a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning. With two outs and Jeremy Giambi on first base, Terrence Long hit a line drive into the right field corner. With Giambi rounding third base, right fielder Shane Spencer's throw missed both cut-off men. It appeared that Giambi would score easily, tying the game, when Derek Jeter, while running across the diamond, reached out, cradled the ball, and shovel passed it to catcher Jorge Posada. Posada tagged Giambi, who attempted to jump over the tag as opposed to sliding around it. ESPN ranks this play as the 45th most memorable moment of the last 25 years. [1] In baseball, a batted ball can be called one of several various things, depending on how it comes off the bat and where in the field it lands. ...

This single play is often credited with changing the momentum of the series. The Yankees held on to win this game, and then finished off the A's by winning games 4 and 5 as well.


Jeter also made another spectacular play (again with Terrence Long batting) that is often overlooked. In the Top of the 8th inning of Game 5, Long hit a towering foul pop up in a two run game. Jeter, running and following the ball at the same time made a backhanded grab and then turning his body, flipped into the stands. For a moment, no one knew if the ball had been caught. Here is Thom Brenneman's call of the play: "Popped up, third base side. JETER...DID HE GET IT?! DID HE GET IT?! DID HE GET IT?! HE GOT IT! HE GOT IT! HE GOT IT!" Jeter would continue to play in the postseason despite a slight leg injury from the tumble.

Trivia

  • "The Flip" was shown in a commercial for the sports drink Gatorade, except that Jeter made the throw to Posada too late, thus Posada could not tag Giambi in time allowing him to score. After promoting the drink, the play was replayed, but this time Jeter threw it at the right time and Posada tagged Jeremy Giambi out.

Gatoradeis a non-carbonated sports drink marketed by the Quaker Oats Company, a division of PepsiCo. ...
