On May 29, 1995, major league baseball welcomed an unfamiliar face into the organization. Derek Jeter made his debut with the New York Yankees and began to give every past, current and future players a run for their money. The Colorado Rockies were in the midst of their third season when Jeter put on his pinstripes for the first time. On this day, the Rockies faced defeat as the Cardinals pulled ahead in the 11th inning, bringing the score to 6-5. Marvin Freeman, Darren Holmes and Bill Swift led the Rockies to finish second in the National League West just one loss away from the first place Dodgers.
