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


Derek Jeter has taken his place among Yankee legends.

Upon having his No. 2 retired by the New York Yankees in a pregame ceremony Sunday night, a thankful Derek Jeter said he would not want to be anybody else.

Several of the players whose numbers had been retired previously wore a new Monument Park navy blazer, and one also was given to Jeter by Houston's Carlos Beltran, a former Yankees teammate who suggested the idea past year to equipment manager Rob Cucuzza.

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. They each were given Monument Park blazers.

The Celtics looked depleted and outmatched while the Wizards looked unstoppable and the more talented team on the floor. Bradley was the catalyst to the Game 5 victory. "I'm versatile", Thomas said when asked about setting screens.

Jeter, 42, and his wife took some time to pose for photos alongside a replica of his newly unveiled dedication plaque.

Three years removed from a big league career that spanned 1995-2014, Jeter personally picked Mothers Day for his tribute.

"I think he'd be a good one", the former Yankees pitdher said of Jeter owning a team.

This was another and vintage Derek Jeter moment in the Bronx.

Similar trading programs linking Hong Kong to the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock markets launched in 2014 and 2016, respectively. On Wednesday, analysts at CICC said Bond Connect would have a limited short-term impact as a result.

Sticking to the emotional script written across the long, glorious expanse of his Yankee career, Jeter managed to deflect the deeper side of his emotional soul, maintaining the singular brand of cool that came to define his pinstriped life, going for humor when tears threatened to move in, hitting just the right note in his on-field speech to the sold-out stands.

Some of Jeter's former teammates weren't in attendance for the ceremony, most notably Alex Rodriguez. Torre said Jeter was the player he wanted the ball to go to in the field, and whom he wanted to bat in an important spot. Asked about reports he is part of a group trying to buy the Miami Marlins, Jeter said: "There's nothing to report, absolutely nothing".

Of course, you can't honor a legendary baseball player without giving him a bunch of expensive gifts.

The CDU is looking to cash in on anger over issues including security, rising crime, immigration and relatively high unemployment. A "grand coalition" would mirror Mrs Merkel's national government, in which the Social Democrats are the junior partners.

"When you play here in NY for 20 years, I learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever". Rodriguez did, however, tweet his congratulations to Jeter, saying "Thank you for the pleasure of playing alongside you for so many years".
