  • Derek Jeter waves to fans as he is introduced at the dedication of a plaque for Bernie Williams in Monument Park before the New York Yankees baseball game against the Texas Rang

Jeter didn't have No. 2 in his mind before reaching the Yankees.

Derek Jeter entered to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" and exited to Tina Turner's "Simply The Best". Even though the No. 2 had been out of circulation since his retirement, Sunday made it official.

Jeter said during his speech between games of the Yankees-Astros doubleheader. "I was happy with mine".

Jeter finished his career with a.310 career average and sixth all-time in hits.

"Playing here in NY for 20 years, I learned that time flies, memories fade but family is forever", Jeter said.

'There isn't a person or player I would trade places with that's playing now or ever, ' he explained.

Jeter is also the fifth member of his championship teams to have his number retired, joining Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams.

"The Captain" will go down in history. Jeter was joined at the ceremony by his pregnant wife, 27-year-old model Hannah Jeter.

Selena Gomez has popped out her new single 'Bad Liar'
And while it remains to be seen whether these are actually lyrics from her new music, fans seem to think that is the case. Selena Gomez has debuted her brand new single Bad Liar and it may sound a little familiar to music experts.

He is the team's career leader in hits, games played, at-bats, doubles and stolen bases, and retired as the team's longest run captain. "It's always something he's had a desire to do".

Who is Derek Jeter today? I prided myself in my career to be prepared at all times.

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

He did it with unwavering belief in his skill and unnatural calm under pressure. "Back in the Dominican, we got the Yankees all the time on TV, and he was one of my favorites growing up". "He was just the complete package". I'm unprepared. From what people have told me, you just do it and see what happens.

"I've said this before, there is one thing that stands out of to me on the field". "But the way that the fans reacted and the relationship that I had with them for 20 years, it felt as though it was a playoff-type atmosphere". Time and time again he'd come up with big hits.

"What do you say on a day like this?" Competitors respected him, managers coveted him.

It looks as though most of the rain has cleared out. Giles secured the victory for Houston, but not before giving up the final Yankee run of the evening. Thank you very much. "I" ve had this special relationship with the organization and fans for years. So as passionate as he was about the game, how he played it and how he prepared for it, I'm sure whatever he wants to go into, he'll be similar. "Everybody knows who he is and what he's done, and he's a polarizing figure - a guy you play against but are still star-struck by".
