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

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

A whopping 22 different Yankees have had their number retired, more than any other team in baseball.

Although Jeter is now retired and away from the game, Rodriguez remains a special adviser to the Yankees.

"Today I'm no longer that kid". Any Yankees fan already knew the answers by heart. "Thank the Good Lord for making Jeter a Yankee", said one.

"He was the captain on the field", the 23-year-old Bregman told the Chronicle.

New York Yankees' Didi Gregorius, left, Aaron Judge, center, and Starlin Castro celebrate after a baseball game against the Houston Astros at Yankee Stadium, Sunday, May 14, 2017, in New York.

How many Yankees have had their number retired?

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.

To read this article in one of Houston's most-spoken languages, click on the button below. Said Houston manager A.J. Hinch, "McCann has done that before in this ballpark and he got a great pitch to hit".

Jeter wore the last available single digit in the Yankees' circulation, No. 2 and, even though he originally wanted No. 13, it seemed like fate or destiny that not only would he be a Yankee, but he would join its prestigious single digit club. He never got into trouble. "Thank you very much".

There are no words that can express the love the city of NY and Yankee fans had, and continue to have, for "The Captain". However, their relationship had deteriorated over the years and became quite muddy at times. There's a whole lot more things you can bring to the table, not just in the field of play, the way he is in the dugout, the way he'll pick guys up. He came into this weekend hoping Beltran would introduce him again Sunday. He's sixth all-time in hits.

ASTROS KEY TRENDS: The Astros are 21-7 in their last 28 games overall, are 5-2 in their last seven games when playing the second game of a double-header, and are 5-2 in their last seven games versus an opponent with a winning record.

"I was speechless", Reddick recalled this week. He added, "I got a chance to play for a first class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports". Hopefully it stays out of the way so that the Yankees can honor Jeter without a downpour. Of course the ball went to the right field porch, so welcome home Brian McCann.

Derek Jeter stood behind the lectern and held the microphone.

Needing two hits before a sold-out home crowd to reach the milestone, Jeter reached 3,000 with a home run and went on to go 5-for-5, the last single giving them a one-run victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Instead, the Yankees will finish up the series against the Astros tomorrow with a doubleheader.

No. 1 belonged to former player and manager Billy Martin, No. 6 was worn by Torre, who steered the pinstripes to four World Series crowns in five years from 1996, No. 9 graced the back of Roger Maris, whose 61 home runs in 1961 broke Ruth's 1927 mark of 60, and 10 was Phil Rizzuto's number. "He's going to be an all star for years to come".

"That's just class and respect for people", Hinch said.

They were in touch a little bit.

Houston took a 6-4 lead in the seventh against Adam Warren (1-0), but NY came right back in the bottom half when Holliday hit a run-scoring infield single against Will Harris (1-1) and Castro tied it with an opposite-field double to right off Devenski.
