Nearly 1 million tune in to watch Derek Jeter's speech

The MLB all-star, who unveiled his plaque at the Yankee Stadium in NY while retiring his famed No. 2 jersey, was asked by a reporter: "You did a great job of handling the jobs of being a Yankee". He is the 22 Yankee to have his number retired.

Turns out there's one thing Derek Jeter isn't supremely confident in! In between, he was serenaded with "Der-ek, Je-ter" chants as he was surrounded by family and Yankees royalty.


His No. 2 jersey retirement went just as expected, featuring flawless weather despite earlier rain following a come-from-behind Yankees victory in front of a capacity Stadium crowd Sunday.

Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and his wife Hannah Jeter stand beside his Monument Psrtk plaque during an on-field, pregame ceremony retiring Jeter's number 2 at Yankee Stadium in New York, Sunday, May 14, 2017. "There isn't a person or player I would trade places with - that played now, or ever".


Like Jeter, Ortiz is a future Hall of Famer and was as loved during his career in Boston as Jeter was in NY. Mr. November In the 2001 World Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Jeter hits a homerun minutes after the clock struck midnight and earned the iconic nickname "Mr. November.' 4) 3,000th Hit On July 9, 2011, Jeter hit his 3,000th hit in a game with a homer".
