His dive into the stands parallel to third base July 1, 2004, at the stadium to make an out of play catch in the top of the 12th inning against the Red Sox was another memorable, iconic Jeter moment, and another contribution to the many team victories.
Aaron Judge followed with his major league-leading 14th homer, a 441-foot drive off the padding above the center-field restaurant behind Monument Park, where a plaque honoring Jeter was to be unveiled during the ceremony before the night game. Then it will turn out that Jeter didn't retire the captaincy of the Yankees the way he ultimately retired No. 2.
To celebrate Jeter's love for the game, the brand is inviting local community members to participate in a stick ball game they're hosting in the Bronx prior to Sunday's Yankees game.
A host of former team mates and coaches attended the ceremony before Sunday's game against the Houston Astros, including Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, Hideki Matsui, and his former manager Joe Torre. The starter, Luis Severino, struggled without his best stuff in just 2.1 innings.
"I played here for 20 years and I learned that time flies and that memories fade, but family is forever", Jeter told the sold-out crowd of 48,000 that frequently broke into a familiar "Der-ek Je-ter" chant that rocked Yankee Stadium. And I'll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family, ' he continued.

Derek is a 14-time MLB All-Star, and his number 2 will be retired during today's Yankee's game. And I say this very humbly, there isn't a person or player I would trade places with that's playing now or ever. Another right field single in September 2009 gave Jeter 2,722 hits, one more than legendary Yankee great Lou Gehrig, whose Hall of Fame career was cut short by illness in 1939. This is what he meant at Yankee Stadium, and that mostly means the old Stadium, the one where he said all the "ghosts" resided, the ghosts he said came with the Yankees when they moved to the north side of 161st and into their fancy, almost palatial, new digs. 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. NOVEMBER'" and goes on to call him "THE CORNERSTONE OF FIVE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS" AND "A LEADER ON THE FIELD AND IN THE CLUBHOUSE, SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR HIS TEAMMATES WITH HIS UNCOMPROMISING DESIRE FOR TEAM SUCCESS". Jeter was the star of all of them. "I'm sure he's looking forward to it". "There's so much about him that doesn't show up in the stats". His line could have been worse, but Chad Green got Alex Bregman to bounce into a double play.
He did it with unwavering belief in his skill and unnatural calm under pressure. "But that was a special moment for me, and I'll never forget that last game". "He was just the complete package".
Since there is an actual game played before, there is always the possibility that things could be delayed.
"I didn't get my job done, so they have all the right to boo me", Tanaka said through a translator. My generation when I first came up, everyone wanted to be Derek Jeter.
