The New York Yankees retire Derek Jeter's No. 2

"I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports", Jeter said. Jeter was, by some, overrated. He ranked third on the list in a similar survey three years later, and numerous articles were written on the subject when the shortstop retired.

In an interview posted to the Yankees' website, Jeter praised Judge, saying, "The good thing about him is you can tell from his demeanor and his attitude that he wants to improve, he wants to be better and he handles himself the right way, not only on the field but off the field".

Jeter began the ceremony with his family in Monument Park and didn't see the clips.

Jorge Posada talks about Jeter's No. 2 being retired.

Jeter is also an impending father.

This time, the 42-year-old Jeter said, he wanted to "just experience it".

Jeter is often thought to be a player that can't be defined by stats.

The Astros and Yankees will conclude a four-game series with a doubleheader and in between games Derek Jeter will have his No. 2 jersey retired. He's sixth all-time in hits. Whether or not that matters is an open question, but it wouldn't necessarily shock me if Derek Jeter is the last baseball player who attains his level of fame and celebrity for a long, long time. His career took off after that, and 21 years later, Jeter is nearly 43 and an expectant father. Pete Rose, Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron, Stan Musial, Tris Speaker. He made 14 All-Star teams and he has an All-Star Game MVP award and five Silver Slugger awards on his resume.

Jeter was the face of baseball for nearly two decades, and his accomplishments, of course, are well known.

Tanaka gave up two more runs in the second on another homer to Springer and a RBI double to Carlos Beltran as the Astros widened the gap 8-0. I'm pretty sure I remember reading somewhere that ESPN will carry it too. Morton takes a three-game winning streak into Sunday night after allowing one earned run and five hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday.

Jeter's career, quite obviously, needs no detailed summary.

Jeter's brilliance in the postseason goes beyond just his stats and titles.

Yankees: After day off, CC Sabathia (2-2) starts Tuesday at Kansas City.

The Yankees will also play the Astros Sunday. "I was asked recently by someone, they said, 'If you could change places with one person, who would it be?' And I say this very humbly, there isn't a person or player I would trade places with as playing now or ever".

He was never a native New Yorker by definition - he arrived in the Bronx by way of Kalamazoo, Michigan - but since his 1995 debut and his 1996 AL Rookie of the Year campaign, he not only became a New Yorker, he became the face of the Big Apple.
