Headley rallies Yanks over Astros 11-6 before Jeter ceremony

The struggles of players like A-Rod on baseball's biggest stage only highlighted just how remarkable Jeter's playoff career was.

Derek Jeter held a microphone and spoke without notes to the crowd that filled sold-out Yankee Stadium.

Jeter is the fifth member of his championship teams to have his number retired, joining Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams. "I was happy with mine". The starter, Luis Severino, struggled without his best stuff in just 2.1 innings.

"What's so incredible about this game is three years after playing his last game, Derek Jeter is still a draw for the Yankees".

Win or lose, the memories for these families on Mother's Day will live on, all a part of a lasting legacy.

I was asked recently by someone they was if you could trade places with, one person, who would it be? Now, as the Yankees retire Jeter's number 2, all of Boston and New England tip their caps from afar to the games true captain. "De-rek Je-ter! De-rek Je-ter!", Jeter had the honor of unveiling his No. 2 plaque in Monument Park. Other Yankees were bigger and stronger, many were faster and more athletic, and no one ever said Jeter was the Bombers' best defender. His grandmother, parents, sister, nephew and pregnant wife joined him for the ceremony, and he laughed when he saw the plaque, which reads “DEREK SANDERSON JETER/THE CAPTAIN/”MR. Hall of Famer Joe Torre even called Jeter the greatest play he'd ever managed. Jeter was the star of all of them. I feel selfish saying that because, like I said, we were eliminated. It is interesting, though, that the last one put him past Babe Ruth, the player who first made the Yankees the Yankees.

He did it with unwavering belief in his skill and unnatural calm under pressure. Then-Yankees manager Buck Showalter is said to have behind the switch. (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.

"I didn't get my job done, so they have all the right to boo me", Tanaka said through a translator. He thanked Yankees fans, "for pushing me, for challenging me, for making me accountable, but more important, for embracing me from day one".

"I hate to say it because my wife is in the back, but when she was in NY for a launch week right after she had announced that she was pregnant, she was doing an interview, and they asked her, 'Do you have any weird cravings?'" A 14-time All-Star, the Yankees said Jeter is sixth in baseball history with 3,465 career hits and he tops the Yankees' all-time list in hits, games played (2,747), doubles (544), stolen bases (358), at-bats (11,195), singles (2,595) and hit-by-pitches (170).

Then, of course, there are the playoffs, where Jeter shined more than nearly anyone.
