The New York Yankees retire Derek Jeter's No. 2

The New York Yankees retire Derek Jeter's No. 2

Upon having his No. 2 retired by the New York Yankees in a pregame ceremony Sunday night, a thankful Derek Jeter said he would not want to be anybody else.

The ceremony took place at Yankee Stadium just before the Yankees played the Houston Astros for the second game of their doubleheader. So the Yankees did that too. I didn't want to prepare a speech tonight because whenever I do, if I forget a part of it, none of it makes any sense.

Jeter eventually made his way onto the field where he got a close look at the plaque the Yankees have dedicated to Monument Park in his honor.

'I got a chance to play for a first-class organization in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports, ' he said to his screaming fans. One other Astro has a small connection to Jeter, too: outfielder George Springer, who grew up in northern CT as an admitted Red Sox fan but got to see a lot of Jeter watching that rivalry.

YES's coverage from 6-7:30 p.m. averaged 724,000 viewers, the network said Monday, with 952,000 tuning in from 7:15-7:30 p.m., when Jeter gave his speech to the Yankee Stadium crowd. Literally, I didn't know what to say besides that you. That distinction is how that era of Yankees fans was symbolic of what Derek Jeter meant. "I was happy with mine".

Jeter played in an unfathomable 158 postseason games, nearly a full 162-game season, and had a major-league record 200 hits. "So, I'm excited, but at the same time I'm nervous".

Clippard spent 2008-14 with Washington so he only faced Jeter once, but it's an at-bat he'll never forget. "He probably doesn't even remember it, but for me that's awesome".

"From everything people have told me, just do it and see what happens", he continued.

The Yankees have most recently retired Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera's numbers and Jeter is the 22nd player to have his number retired by the team.

The Pinstripe's favorite "Captain" takes his place amongst the Yankee legends. "I'm excited, but at the same time I'm nervous". "I think it's pretty awesome, and I'm thankful for the Cubs for choosing me to do that".

"It was always what we accomplished", Jeter said.

One by one, the Yankees of the late '90-early 2000s dynasty have had their moments in the Bronx. "Thank you very much". He finished top-five in the MVP voting five times, though he never won the award, and was selected to 10 All-Star games.
