Game 35: Derek Jeter Day

Derek Jeter - formerly #2 of the New York Yankees - will have his number retired Sunday.

That Jeter belongs in Monument Park was a well-deserved, non-debatable foregone conclusion.

When the Yankees officially retire Jeter's No. 2 jersey Sunday night at Yankee Stadium, it officially puts a cap on the end of a particular Yankee era: the single digit era.

You know, you play here in NY for 20 years, you know I learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever, and I'll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees' family.

NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Jeter's No. 2 has been retired by the New York Yankees, who dedicated a plaque in his honor that will be placed in Monument Park behind center field.

Jeter won five World Series titles.

Jordan published a letter to Jeter in The Players' Tribune as a way to honor Jeter's legacy, which will be cemented Sunday when his number is retired at Yankee Stadium. 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.

I always loved Jeter for his ability to come up in the big spots. He was another Yankee that spent time in pinstripes with Jeter and was signed by the Astros during the offseason as the Yankees began that process of getting younger and more athletic.

Separately, Jeter crafted his own video tribute and letter to NY, which ran this week on The Players' Tribune, the site Jeter helped create. Joe Torre, Jorge Posada, Tino Martinez, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte were there to remind everyone what the place used to feel like and how fast the years have flown by.

"I didn't get the job done", Tanaka said through an interpreter. I've played baseball for 18 years, if you ever needed a big hit in a situation and especially in the postseason, those are hard at bats to come by and hard at bats under pressure, and Derek was the absolute best at handling those, like I'd never seen anyone handle them before.

The Houston Astros and New York Yankees meet Sunday in Major League Baseball action in the second game of a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium on ESPN.

Yankees co-owner Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal presented the 14-time All-Star with a 14-karat white gold ring with "2" in diamonds, surrounded by diamonds.

"I am very fortunate that my son and wife gave me a lovely Mother's Day present, the best present ever", said Rose Kazinetz of Dickson City.

"I will have our guys out here, to clap for him and be a part of it", Hinch said.

Chad Green got Alex Bregman to ground into his second double play of the game and threw 3 2/3 innings of one-hit relief.

Was it his last one at Yankee Stadium. his walk-off single n his final home game?

Then, of course, there are the playoffs, where Jeter shined more than nearly anyone.

During the ceremony Jeter took the opportunity to say just how thankful he is for the exeprience, saying that he would not want to be anyone else.

Jeter liked it there fine.
