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

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

I'll start it with thank you to George Steinbrenner and the George Steinbrenner family for giving me the opportunity to play my entire career for the only team I wanted to play for.

Former New York Yankee Derek Jeter and his wife Hannah Jeter leave the field after a ceremony retiring Jeter's number at Yankee Stadium, Sunday, May 14, 2017, in New York. "You can look at him season to season numbers-wise and say that nothing really stands out that's great, but to me, he's the greatest clutch hitter I've ever seen".

Yankees: 1B Greg Bird, who hasn't played since May 1 because of a bone bruise in his right ankle, still has not been cleared to resume baseball activities. "And I'll be eternally grateful to be part of the Yankees family".

A model of consistency with an even-keeled deportment and the confidence of a natural leader, Jeter became the face of the team and in 2003 was named 11th captain in franchise history.

And that was winning and playing the game properly.

Jeter didnt have No. 2 in his mind before reaching the Yankees.

Jeter retired after the 2014 season.

Jeter, 42, and his wife took some time to pose for photos alongside a replica of his newly unveiled dedication plaque.

“There isnt a person or player I would trade places with thats playing now or ever, ” he told the fans. Eventually nothing is next because youre retired, but we all had those same mindsets and thats why I think we had success.

A host of former team mates and coaches attended the ceremony before Sunday's game against the Houston Astros, including Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, Hideki Matsui, and his former manager Joe Torre. It's considered a great honor to have your jersey number retired!

Jeter won five World Series, retired with 3,465 hits, sixth on MLB's all-time list and a career batting average of.310. “When we were in it we used to constantly have conversations about it: You never look back at anything that we had accomplished, it was always whats next. "So I thought it would be nice to have this special day on Mother's Day to honor her and all that she's meant not only to my career, but she helped shape who I am today". "That's what makes this organization so special". One thing the Yankees know how to do is ceremonies.

However, Derek Jeter was one of a kind. "I tried to set the tone for the rest of the guys and I tried to do it in a professional manner".

Jeter's Hall of Fame eligibility is just around the corner, but for now, he'll be satisfied soaking in all the love and support from Yankees fans who idolized him for more than two decades.
