Jeter’s No. 2 Retired by Yanks – Upon having his No. 2 retired by the New York Yankees on Sunday night, a thankful Derek Jeter said he would not want to be anybody else. “There isn’t a person or player I would trade places with that’s playing now or ever,” Jeter said addressing the sellout crowd at the conclusion of the ceremony. “And the reason why I say that is because I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports.” Along with retiring his number and putting a plaque in Monument Park in Jeter’s honor, the Yankees gave him framed replicas of both, plus a 14-karat white gold ring that listed his accomplishments. Jeter is the fifth member of his championship teams to have his number retired, joining Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams. They each were given Monument Park blazers.
