When his Texas-El Paso Miners take on Lousiana Tech at 6 p.m. Saturday at Joe Aillet Stadium, UTEP Head Coach Sean Kugler knows the 2-3 Bulldogs will present a challenge.

Fittingly, Jeter turned in an RBI-single in his final at bat, helping lead to the Yankees to a 9-5 road win at Fenway Park.
Three days earlier, Jeter capped his Yankee Stadium farewell with a walk-off, game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead New York to a 6-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
