Jeter's No. 2 retired in emotional Yankees ceremony

Jeter's No. 2 retired in emotional Yankees ceremony Jeter's No. 2 retired in emotional Yankees ceremony

The sculpture on Jeter's Monument Park plaque actually looks like Jeter. Castro played shortstop at the time, and when the Yankees visited Wrigley Field that season, it was Castro who got to go out on the field to give The Captain his parting gift: a No. 2 from the manual scoreboard at Wrigley.

Jeter picked Mother's Day for the ceremony, and his grandmother, parents, sister, nephew and pregnant wife joined him at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. "The house Jeter built", said another, echoing the nickname for the old Yankee Stadium as "The House that Ruth built". "I'm sure it'll be a wonderful event for the fans and for Derek, as well".

Derek Jeter stared into this frozen, bronze image of himself, a slightly awkward smile creasing a face that's a bit rounder than it was back in his prime playing days, crinkling the corners of eyes that carry a bit more luggage these days, too. Eventually nothing is next because you're retired, but we all had those same mindsets and that's why I think we had success. First up, however, is the Derek Jeter jersey retirement ceremony. "I like the approach, though, I may be retired, but I still know how people try to get you to (say things)".

During Jeter's remarks - which he later said were off the cuff - he emphasized how thankful he was.

Trump asked Comey to shut down Flynn investigation
And House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called it a "brazen attempt" to shut down the FBI's investigation. Democrats immediately called for Comey to testify before Congressional committees on the matter.

Of course, you can't honor a legendary baseball player without giving him a bunch of expensive gifts.

"I might have gotten emotional, but we were back there joking and having a good time with my family", he said.

Clippard spent 2008-14 with Washington so he only faced Jeter once, but it's an at-bat he'll never forget. I didn't want to prepare a speech tonight because whenever I do, if I forget a part of it, none of it makes any sense. "It's a moment I'll never forget". The honor cements the captain's legacy as one of the team - and sport's - greatest players.

He won five Gold Gloves for defensive excellence at one of the game's crucial fielding positions, and five Silver Slugger awards for being the best offensive player at the position.
