Derek Jeter gives emotional speech as Yankees retire No. 2 jersey

Derek Jeter gives emotional speech as Yankees retire No. 2 jersey

The New York Yankees have placed closer Aroldis Chapman on the 10-day disabled list with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder.

Aaron Judge followed with his major league-leading 14th homer, a 441-foot drive off the padding above the center-field restaurant behind Monument Park, where a plaque honoring Jeter was to be unveiled during the ceremony before the night game. As the evening's events unfolded, various players both past and present took to the internet to share their admiration and respect for the Captain.

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.

All in all, Sunday was a pretty good day to be Derek Jeter...just like pretty much every other day.

The Pinstripe's favorite "Captain" takes his place amongst the Yankee legends.

Sturgeon Claims Independent Scotland Will Rejoin EU in Stages, Without Euro
The SNP candidate for Angus has been challenged by his Conservative opponent over his stance on a post-Brexit fishing industry. Ms Sturgeon said: "My position is I want Scotland to be in the EU". "I think the people of Angus deserve some clarity".

After going back into the dugout to the current Yankees players, Jeter and his wife made their way up the steps to greet the crowd, as well as his former players, coaches, and more. Asked about reports he is part of a group trying to buy the Miami Marlins, Jeter said: "There's nothing to report, absolutely nothing".

"We were laughing because when Bernie had his, he had the big mole", Jeter said, revealing some of the locker room subterfuge his former manager Joe Torre had only just earlier insisted was one of Jeter's best kept secrets from Yankee life. That distinction is how that era of Yankees fans was symbolic of what Derek Jeter meant.

One by one, the Yankees of the late '90-early 2000s dynasty have had their moments in the Bronx. "There isn't a person or player I would trade places with - that played now, or ever". I feel selfish saying that because, like I said, we were eliminated.

Of course, the Yankees couldn't let Jeter go without getting him to throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Sunday's series finale against the Astros (GameTracker). Springer's home run began what would be a rough outing for Tanaka, who would give up yet another home run on the very next pitch to Josh Reddick for his fifth home run of the year. Second, in his final career at-bat at Yankee Stadium, Jeter won the game with a walk-off RBI single to right field against the Orioles. They slowly attempted to claw their way back into the ballgame following a Matt Holliday home run in the bottom of the fifth, trimming the Astros lead from eight down to five.
