Yankee Stadium: Jeter’s bat, spikes going to Hall

Associated PressCOOPERSTOWN, N.Y. ó Jose Molina’s home run in the final regular-season game at Yankee Stadium put him into the history book, and the Hall of Fame.
Molina hit the last home run at the ballpark, connecting Sunday night in the Yankees’ 7-3 win over Baltimore. The spikes he wore were donated to the Hall after the game.
The bat Johnny Damon used to homer in the last game ó he’d broken all of his own, so he used a Xavier Nady model ó also was sent to Cooperstown.
Derek Jeter will be represented, too, with a bat that he used during the final homestand and the spikes he wore when he passed Lou Gehring on the Yankee Stadium career hit list.
The new items will go on display this fall after they are entered in the museum archives.
Dozens of other artifacts from Yankee Stadium already are at the Hall, including the lockers of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio, box seats and two turnstiles and a ticket booth.
The Hall is also working to acquire artifacts from the final regular-season game at She Stadium, which will be played Sunday.
