It was the season of the selfie. Just more than five months after David Ortiz snapped a photo with President Barack Obama, Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly used the camera-phone technology to punctuate the campaign's final day. Upon greeting Derek Jeter during the entire Red Sox roster's meet and greet with the Yankees shortstop during pregame ceremonies, Jeter took a few extra seconds to pose with the man of the day.

Yet, as well-executed as Kelly's photo turned out, his wife's tweet after the moment may have been even more impressive. Perhaps the real highlight of the ceremony, however, was the introduction of former Boston College baseball star Pete Frates, who is battling ALS and served as the impetus for the ice bucket challenge, helping raise awareness to combat the disease. Also, Red Sox third base coach Brian Butterfield -- Jeter's former coach with the Yankees -- delivered the shortstop a pair of Yankees L.L. Bean boots. Here is the more from the ceremony. [poll id=91]
