Derek Jeter's number is retired at Yankee stadium

Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter right looks around during a pregame ceremony after his No. 2 was retired in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium in New York Sunday

2, the last of the single digit pinstripes, had been retired and a plaque in his honor dedicated that will be placed in Monument Park alongside tributes to Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Berra and the rest of the teams greats. "He was kind of representative of an entire generation of great players".

Not that this current Yankees team and managed by Joe Girardi does not have the same mentality.

The Yankees announced before the opener that closer Aroldis Chapman will be out at least a month because of a sore shoulder, forcing them to reshuffle their bullpen, and Houston took a 6-4 lead in the seventh against Adam Warren (1-0).

Jorge Posada talks about Jeter's No. 2 being retired.

However, Derek Jeter was one of a kind.

“I want to thank my family for their love, support, honesty and more importantly their presence at everything I did both on and off the field, ” he said during a three-minute speech that ended the 40-minute ceremony. "Every kid growing up in my time always followed Jeter", Castro said.

Looking pretty in pink in special Mother's Day uniforms, the AL East leaders stopped their first three-game losing streak since the season's opening week.

Springer never technically shared a field with Jeter - he was a rookie in 2014 but was injured when the Yankees and Astros played - but he has talked to Beltran and McCann about The Captain. No rumors about substance abuse or drugs to enhance his body and boost the statistics.

Derek Jeter has taken his place among Yankee legends.

This air was different from the other retirement ceremonies of numbers at Yankee Stadium. "I just want them to set their own goals, and have nothing to do with us, because I think it's not fair", she continued.

He won five Gold Gloves for defensive excellence at one of the game's crucial fielding positions, and five Silver Slugger awards for being the best offensive player at the position. It was another Derek Jeter moment in the Bronx and probably not the last when it comes to being that New York Yankee.

"And I'll be eternally grateful for being a part of the Yankee family".
