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

NY appropriately played two on Derek Jeter Night, a doubleheader against Houston caused by a rainout Saturday, and the festivities took place after an 11-6 win in the opener.

More than a dozen former New York Yankees, of course including the rest of the Core Four, were at Yankee Stadium Sunday night to see Derek Jeter get his No. 2 retired.

But Jeter, who had his No. 2 jersey retired by the Yankees on Sunday, says there is no news concerning the group's bid, despite Bush saying he is optimistic they can close the deal and buy the team. "As the cornerstone of five world championship teams", it reads, "Jeter was a leader on the field and in the clubhouse, setting an example for his teammates with his uncompromising desire for team success".

During his remarkable career, Jeter recorded a franchise-record 3,465 hits, which also ranks sixth all-time in Major League Baseball history, ‎1,311 RBIs and 260 home runs.

This was another and vintage Derek Jeter moment in the Bronx.

In addition to having his number retired, Jeter received a ring, a blazer and a plaque that will be placed in Monument Park. He is the 22 Yankee to have his number retired.

"When I was younger, with Atlanta, I got a chance to play against him in Yankee Stadium, and that was awesome", McCann said. Jeter said he chose this day to receive the honor because he wanted to highlight his mother's and his family's contribution to his success. Never one to say much, The Captain fought back tears as he thanked his teammates, family, and the Yankee faithful.

"They were here for his last game here, and if you had to write a book, I'm sure that's how it would end", Springer smiled. I learned that time flies. "The house Jeter built", said another, echoing the nickname for the old Yankee Stadium as "The House that Ruth built".

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

"There wasn't a whole lot of flash about him, he wasn't a big power hitter, he wasn't stealing a lot of bases I guess, not one thing that stood out", Pettitte said.

Both teams wore special Mother's Day uniforms, undershirts and caps with pink elements, and many players used pink bats.
