Jeter's No 2 retired by Yanks; Monument Park plaque unveiled

Jeter, of course, is one of the greatest shortstops of all-time and won five champions with the Yankees. He ushered in one of the greatest eras in Yankee history.

For all his fandom, Bregman saw Jeter play live in person only once, at Arizona's Chase Field against the Diamondbacks years ago when in the area for travel ball.

The ceremony concluded with a speech from Jeter, which he started by saying Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.

Jeter chose Mother's Day for the occasion, and he was accompanied by his grandmother, his mother and father, sister and pregnant wife, Hannah.

"When Bernie got his, he had the big mole".

"Jorge had the big ears, Andy had the big nose". Some may say it's bland and safe, but that's how Jeter usually answered questions during the bulk of his career.

Derek is a 14-time MLB All-Star, and his number 2 will be retired during today's Yankee's game.

The Stadium was thick with nostalgia, a This-Is-Your-Life journey on the Jumbotron scoreboard that reminded Yankees fans why they fell in love with Derek Jeter in 1996 and never stopped.

Jeter decided not to use notes as he addressed the crowd of 47,883.

Jeter was never the best player in baseball, despite his longevity and despite the unbelievable career he had, one that never saw a single losing season, a career that saw him win one last game for the Yankees at the Stadium in the last game he ever played there, when he pushed a single into right field against the Orioles.

Former teammates Mariano Rivera, Paul ONeill, Tino Martinez, David Cone and Hideki Matsui also were on hand.

A Yankees legend is set to have his number retired Sunday after playing in pinstripes for 20 years. Reggie Jackson was on the field in shirt sleeves. Time will tell if that will come true, or if he will come close to the retired Yankee captain.

The New York Yankees will look to split the series tonight as Masahiro Tanaka gets the start against Charlie Morton.

Now that he has been immortalized in Monument Park, the next destination for Jeter is Cooperstown.

He rode to the infield in a golf cart as Frank Sinatra's version of "My Way" was played.

“Everything happened so quickly, ” Jeter said. I'm not a Yankees fan and, let's be honest, Jeter didn't need me rooting for him. Don Mattingly, when he was young and healthy, was a better hitter than Jeter was even when Jeter was having his own very best years. "When I came here, Jim Leyritz had it". And for that answer, you have to remember what day it is. The struggles of players like A-Rod on baseball's biggest stage only highlighted just how remarkable Jeter's playoff career was. The No. 0 is available, but the Yankees have never issued it, though manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman said they are not opposed to doing so.

“Theres rumors out there that Buck suggested I be No. 2, ” Jeter said.

"He was a role model for I feel like every kid that played shortstop growing up", Correa said. Jeter is reportedly teaming with Jeb Bush in trying to buy the Miami Marlins, whom Mattingly manages.

"There's nothing to report on that". Absolutely nothing, ” he said.

A few weeks later he got a hit in his last time at-bat at the Stadium and beat the Orioles.

He is the team's career leader in hits, games played, at-bats, doubles and stolen bases, and retired as the team's longest run captain.

“Having five people from that group is kind of hard to believe, ” Jeter said. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

"Thank you, New York, for asking a lot of me". Definitely on YES. I know that much.
