The teams will play a doubleheader on Sunday, when the Yankees will honor Derek Jeter before the second game.
How can I watch Jeter's number getting retired?"I know she's so proud of me". Adored uniformly by Yankees fans.
Jeter was the "Prince of New York" during a time when the organization and the city needed one the most.
Several of the players whose numbers had been retired previously wore a new Monument Park navy blazer, and one also was given to Jeter by Houstons Carlos Beltran, a former Yankees teammate. 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.

Per the Yankees, Jeter played his 20th season with the Yankees in 2014, retiring with a personal career winning percentage of.593 and five World Series championships. Jeter, Petttite, Williams, and Posada formed the "Core Four" on the successful Yankees teams that had a great 15-year stretch starting in the mid-1990s. Diaz went on to give up two runs before being replaced Ken Giles. "I was fortunate to play with him and learn a lot". He never got into trouble. So I can't thank you guys enough.
Jeter and Rodriguez spent 10 years as teammates with the Yankees, but had been friends long before that. (Their brown lab is named Koufax.) As an LSU freshman Bregman actually met Jeter a tailgate before an LSU-Alabama football game but only for a quick hello. Time and time again he'd come up with big hits. His 3,465 career hits ranks 6th All-time, along with his countless postseason records. "It starts with good pitching and a good lineup and we have that", McCann said.
Astros: 2B Jose Altuve appeared to be limping slightly before he was pinch run for in the ninth inning of the second game.
"I was speechless", Reddick recalled this week. And I say this very humbly, there isn't a person or player I would trade places with that's playing now or ever. Jeter and Joe Torre and the rest of them did something better: They made the good old days now at Yankee Stadium.
Everything happened so quickly, Jeter said.
"You're probably looking at a minimum of a month if everything goes right", Cashman said.
For seven games in 2013, PNC Field was Derek Jeter's playground. If Cashman is building another Yankee team to last here, whether it wins the way the Yankees did between 1996 and 2002, maybe someday there will be a call to make Aaron Judge captain of the Yankees or Gary Sanchez, or some kid who hasn't even yet shown up in The House that George Steinbrenner Built.
