Jeter's No 2 retired by Yanks; Monument Park plaque unveiled

In fact, the only game that Jeter ever played in which the Yankees were mathematically out of playoff contention was his final home game in 2014, showing just how much Jeter was the quintessential superstar.

Jeter chose Mother's Day for the occasion, and he was accompanied by his grandmother, his mother and father, sister and pregnant wife, Hannah.

"The Captain" is the franchise's all-time leader in hits, stolen bases and games played.

Jeter and Bush are one of two groups that are vying to buy the team; the other is led by Tagg Romney, the son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The plaque is a replica of the one in Monument Park. A five-time World Series champion, Jeter amassed 3,465 hits and was a 14-time All-Star, while never playing for a team with a sub-.500 record.

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

"I got a chance to play for a first-class organisation and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports", Jeter said. She was raised on Long Island in East Islip, rooted for the Yankees and named the family's dog, a Labrador Retriever, after Jeter.

Hamon went on to make a disastrous showing in the presidential election, being eliminated in the first round in fifth place. Nigel Farage, who spearheaded a campaign for Britain's exit from the European Union as former leader of the U.K.

From the flip play to diving in the stands, from a leadoff home run in a World Series game to a walk-off victor in his final at-bat, Jeter always put his pieces together better than the rest of them.

Derek wore jersey number two for his career as a short stop with the New York Yankees.

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

"Everything happened so quickly", Jeter said. It's considered a great honor to have your jersey number retired! "Any time I'm unprepared, it makes me uncomfortable", he admitted.

Jeter grew up in Kalmazoo, Michigan, wanting to be a Yankee.

"I never took it for granted when we won", Jeter said, "but we never looked back at anything that we had accomplished, it was always 'what's next?'" We went out there day in and day out trying to win, trying to do anything to help the team and more importantly trying to keep our jobs.”.
