Derek Jeter will forever be remembered as a Yankee, and now it’s official: No. 2 will always belong to The Captain.
A star-studded group of invitees assembled in the center of the Yankee Stadium infield on Sunday afternoon to cheer on the longtime Yankees captain as he took his rightful place in Monument Park, honored with the retirement of his iconic uniform number.
“I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports,” Jeter said. “When you play here in New York for 20 years, I learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever. And I’ll be eternally grateful to be part of the Yankees family.” More coverage on Yankees.com
