New York Yankees Honor Team Great Derek Jeter With Retirement of Number

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". Eventually nothing is next because youre retired, but we all had those same mindsets and thats why I think we had success. Jeter's will be the 22nd number retired by the Yankees, which means there are no more single digits left for future players to wear.

Along with retiring his number and putting a plaque in Monument park in his honor, the Yankees gave him framed replicas of both, plus a 14-karat white gold ring that listed his accomplishments.

Brewers bash Mets pitching again, come back for 11-9 win MILWAUKEE - Manny Pina hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, capping the Milwaukee Brewers' comeback from a six-run deficit for an 11-9 win Sunday over the New York Mets.

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.
