Watch New York Yankees Retire Derek Jeter's Number

Watch New York Yankees Retire Derek Jeter's Number

Anthony Rieber has been at Newsday since August 31, 1998 and in his current position since 2004. He thanked Yankees fans, "for pushing me, for challenging me, for making me accountable, but more important, for embracing me from day one".

Bernie Williams. Paul O'Neill. Jorge Posada. Joe Torre. "Mr. November" received a bronze plaque for his legacy in a ceremony at a sold-out Yankee Stadium.

Prior to the second game of the Yankees' Sunday doubleheader against the Astros, Derek Jeter joined 21 Yankees greats by having his number retired.

NY appropriately played two on Derek Jeter Night, a doubleheader against Houston caused by a rainout Saturday, and the festivities took place between an 11-6 win and a 10-7 defeat.

However, Nicholas Parco of the New York Daily News recently noted Major League Baseball said Friday it wants bidding groups to show cash up front before any sale is finalized, "which puts the group led by Tagg Romney, the son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, ahead of Jeter's group".

"I'll be will eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankee family", he said.

A whopping 22 different Yankees have had their number retired, more than any other team in baseball. "I know she's so proud of me".

For me, there are two moments that will forever define what made Derek Jeter great.




Detractors of the shortstop will also point to advanced defensive metrics, which highlight Jeter's inadequacies in the field.

Jeter gave a speech as well.

Later, Jeter was asked about becoming a father for the first time at the age of 42.

Masahiro Tanaka (5-1) was to start the second game for the Yankees and Charlie Morton (4-2) for the Astros.

Jeter finished his career with a.310 career average and sixth all-time in hits. In the postseason - with the pressure ratcheted up in every at-bat - he hit.308 with an.838 OPS.

"Everything happened so quickly", Jeter said. "I was fortunate to play with him and learn a lot". Anytime I'm unprepared it makes me uncomfortable. "I can't thank you guys enough". "I just had the time of my life playing here, and I feel very lucky and blessed".

Something tells us he'll be all right.

Jeter was the "Prince of New York" during a time when the organization and the city needed one the most. Besides the Yankees, there are connections to Jeter from the Astros. Then-Yankees manager Buck Showalter is said to have behind the switch.
