Derek Jeter to exploding Yankee Stadium: Thank you

The Yankees retired the No. 2 for longtime shortstop Derek Jeter Sunday night but "The Captain" is already considering un-retiring his number for one special person.

He was also given a framed replica of the plaque that will be placed in Monument Park.

"I want to thank you guys for pushing me, for challenging me, for making me accountable, but more importantly, for embracing me since day one", Jeter said off the cuff.

One other Yankee who wasn't in NY in 2014 has a bit of a connection to Jeter: second baseman Starlin Castro, who was a Chicago Cub then.

"I got to choose", Jeter said.

"When Bernie got his, he had the big mole".

During Jeter's remarks - which he later said were off the cuff - he emphasized how thankful he was.

Jeter is the Yankees' career leader in hits (3,465), games played (2,747), at-bats (11,195), doubles (544) and stolen bases (358) AND those five World Series titles.

"I'm happy to be here today and be a part of history for him and for the Yankees organization", Springer said.

Jeter eventually addressed the crowd, thanking them for their support throughout his career.

Derek Jeter has taken his place among Yankee legends. Tino Martinez. Andy Pettitte.

Derek Jeter completed the top 10 list of numbers retired by the New York Yankees when Major League Baseball's most successful franchise retired his No. 2 in an emotional ceremony on Sunday. Reggie Jackson was on the field in shirt sleeves.

Yankees co-owner Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal presented the 14-time All-Star with a 14-karat white gold ring with "2" in diamonds, surrounded by diamonds.

And the other youngsters are beginning to make this an exciting season in the Bronx with Brett Gardner a Yankee who has the honor of having the longest tenure, and knows something about the mindset that Jeter brought and meant to the Yankees. Additionally, he was the 2004 ALCS MVP and 2013 World Series MVP. They each were given Monument Park blazers.

"You know, I prided myself in my career to be prepared at all games", he replied.
