Looks like the crowd is going wild for Derek Jeter’s final season!
This fan, perhaps wearing sunglasses, sneaked into Steinbrenner Field in Tampa on Saturday to check out Yankees spring-training workouts.
Raccoons are a common sight throughout Tampa and St.Petersburg, but few are known baseball fans.
Eagle-eyed Post photographer Charles Wenzelberg spotted the raccoon and acted fast to snap this incredibly cute image.
“If was a freaky moment and I happened to get it,” Wenzelberg said.
The Post lensman had been in the outfield photographing a rainbow that had appeared over Steinbrenner Field. Then a loud noise startled Wenzelberg — and the raccoon.
“I heard this banging sound – something fell, maybe it was a baseball bat, I don’t know – but it must have startled the raccoon because I see it running out of the Yankees dugout and into the stands,” said Wenzelberg, who swung his camera toward the fleeing critter.
