Tuesday night’s MLB All Star game had plenty of meaningful moments. The majority of those moments had to do with Derek Jeter who was ceremoniously playing in his 14th and final MLB All Star Game.

One of those special moments was Jeter’s leadoff double off Cardinal’s ace Adam Wainwright. That all too perfect hit was Jeter’s way of saying goodbye to professional baseball on a stage that garnered the attention of all sports fans around the country.

That moment was quickly clouded with controversy and regret. Wainwright spoke with reporters following the hit and said ““I was going to give him a couple of pipe shots. I didn’t know he was going to hit a double, though, or I might have changed my mind. I thought he’d line a single to right, or maybe a ground ball.”
