All have had their numbers retired and/or were honored with plaques in Monument Park over the last few years.
Jeter also took a moment to wish his wife and his mom and any other mothers out there a happy Mother's Day. But any teardrops from the man himself? Anytime I'm unprepared it makes me uncomfortable.
Now 42, Jeter captained the Yankees during his final 12 seasons, capping a career that included five World Series titles, a.310 batting average and a New York-record 3,465 hits. The former Cy Young Award victor threw 60-plus pitches in a simulated game earlier this week.
For once, Jeter plans to soak in the emotion. "I'm sure he's looking forward to it".
The rescheduled game will begin at 2:05 p.m. EDT. From Aaron Boone's walk-off home run in game 7 of the 2003 ALCS to David Ortiz's heroics a year later in the 2004 ALCS, the history of this rivalry has a long road.
Only tickets for Sunday will be valid for the doubleheader. "I chose Mother's Day because I have a very special relationship, not only with my mother, but with my whole family".

Jeter and Davis, who are expecting a baby girl, made a stunning pair at Yankee Stadium.
It's impossible to put Jeter's career into the proper perspective without realizing just how highly he ranks in terms of all-time great shortstops. "I'm most proud of how we're playing good consistent baseball", manager A.J. Hinch said. "He might have been the most consistent presence in our game". "You felt it, he wanted to be the guy". There were players who were more important to you or your friends or fans of teams that were not the Yankees.
