The baseball community reacts to Derek Jeter's number retirement

Off of the field, Jeter was known for his vast professionalism, calm demeanor, and for having one of the greatest dating records by any man of all time - along with the gift baskets.

Derek Jeter entered to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" and exited to Tina Turner's "Simply The Best". "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".

"I came over at the trade deadline with the Reds [in 2003], and that was the only team I had played with to that point".

While his jersey marked him as No. 2, it's safe to say that many Yankees fans will regard Jeter as their No. 1 favorite for years to come. The Yankees also unveiled a plaque in the stadium's Monument Park. That distinction is how that era of Yankees fans was symbolic of what Derek Jeter meant. Among all shortstops in the last 60 years, Jeter is second to only Alex Rodriguez with a.377 on-base percentage, and his.310 batting average falls behind only Nomar Garciaparra, who played almost half as many games as the Yankee captain. I chose Mother's Day and the first thing my dad said was, 'What are we going to do on Father's Day?' But my mom especially has been very supportive ever since I was younger, but not just playing baseball.

"And I'll be eternally grateful for being a part of the Yankee family".

Jeter chose to address the crowd without notes.

"I have no clue", Jeter said in an appearance this week on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon".

This schedule will accommodate passengers traveling to the 2:05 PM game, the Derek Jeter ceremony which starts at 6:35 PM, and the second game which starts at 7:35 PM. Also expected in attendance are David Cone, Tino Martinez, Hideki Matsui, Paul O'Neill, Bernie Williams, Gerald Williams, Willie Randolph and Joe Girardii, among others. Alex Rodriguez was not — spokesman Ron Berkowitz said A-Rod was in Miami, spending time with his mother and daughters. Reggie Jackson was on the field in shirt sleeves.


It was the first time in Tanaka's major league career that started with the Yankees in 2014 the 28-year-old right-hander gave up a grand slam.

The new guard of Yankee stars will be on hand to watch as Jeter is honored on Sunday evening. But more importantly for embracing me since Day 1.

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

He rode to the infield in a golf cart as Frank Sinatras version of “My Way” was played.

Pitching on six days' rest, Yankees starter Luis Severino got just three outs with his first 44 pitches and was chased after 77 pitches and 2 1/3 innings. I wasn't born a New Yorker - you asked me to earn it.

Devenski leads big league relievers with 43 strikeouts.

It was, perhaps, a little ironic that No. 2 gets a doubleheader, but the extended length of the day didn't dampen manager Joe Girardi's enthusiasm about it.

“Theres rumors out there that Buck suggested I be No. 2, ” Jeter said.
