Derek Jeter's number is retired at Yankee stadium

Jeter will become the 22nd player in the franchise to have his number retired. "I know she's so proud of me".

According to Jeter, Hannah said she doesn't eat red meat but she loves beef jerky, and because of one person's generosity, now there is an enormous supply of jerky at their house.

It is why there will never be a celebration quite like this again, at the Stadium or anywhere else.

Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, right, looks around during a pregame ceremony after his No. 2 was retired in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium in New York, Sunday, May 14, 2017. From their very first single-digit retired number, Lou Gehrig's number four on July 4, 1939, to the most recent, Joe Torre's number six on August 23, 2014, the single-digit Yankees numbers have an aura of greatness around them. First baseman and former middle infielder Yuli Gurriel, a Cuban defector, still cherishes his selection to the same all-tournament team as Jeter at the end of the inaugural 2006 World Baseball Classic.

I watched Derek Jeter from the time he was in Triple-A in the town where I went to college until his last game in the majors.

"I have a lot of admiration and respect for how he went about his business", said Astros manager A.J. Hinch.

The ceremony started out in Monument Park, beyond the center field fence at Yankee Stadium. While he might not have put up the gaudy power numbers that some others of his era did, Jeter's consistency puts him near the top of the list of players to ever man the position. He never got into trouble.

My question to any Boston fan that hates Jeter is why and how can you hate this guy? Jeter hits the first pitch thrown by Orioles' relief pitcher Evan Meek into right field, driving in the game-winning run-a Hollywood ending to a storied career.

The Bregman family is so fond of Jeter that seven or eight years ago they named their white labrador retriever after him. Those two things are not in conflict, actually.

"If you ever needed a big hit, especially in the post-season, those were hard at-bats, big at-bats", Pettitte told reporters. His 3,465 career hits ranks 6th All-time, along with his countless postseason records.

"Our starting pitchers had a tough time in this series", Girardi said. 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.

"I was speechless", Reddick recalled this week.

Being brought up a Sox fan, I was raised to despise any player who wore pinstripes. Jeter's walk-up was synonymous with the late Bob Sheppard, who's announcement "now batting, numbah two, Derek Jeter, numbah two" is as iconic as Yankee Stadium and the Yankees themselves.

"Everything happened so quickly", Jeter said.
