During the ceremony, the current Yankees and Astros were situated in the dugout, many hanging over the railing to get a better look.

George Springer and Alex Bregman paid tribute to Derek Jeter in their own way - with memorable first-inning home runs off Masahiro Tanaka.

The Astros' Carlos Beltran, a teammate of Jeter's on the Yankees, handed Jeter his blazer. Jeter said he chose this day to receive the honor because he wanted to highlight his mother's and his family's contribution to his success. "It's a moment I'll never forget".

Trump said an agreement struck with China will allow the sell its beef and other major products to that country once again. Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday and later said Comey was a "showboat" and "grandstander" who was not doing a good job.

"I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports", Jeter said. But more importantly for embracing me since Day 1.

Who is Derek Jeter today?

Jeter is also an impending father. 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.

Later, Jeter was asked about becoming a father for the first time at the age of 42. First up, however, is the Derek Jeter jersey retirement ceremony. The Yankees had just retired his iconic No. 2.

Friday. "It's hard terrain to negotiate", said Mike Plante, a spokesman at Yeager airport, which serves West Virginia's capital. Unidentified officials added that it appeared that one of the plane's wings hit the runway.

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. In the postseason - with the pressure ratcheted up in every at-bat - he hit.308 with an.838 OPS. "So, I'm excited, but at the same time I'm nervous". Anytime I'm unprepared it makes me uncomfortable. "Thank you very much".

"Obviously I didn't know then that I would be coming here at the time, but I think it was really special for me to do that", Castro said.

Something tells us he'll be all right. It was Jeter, along with a core group of Yankees, that helped bring five championships to the Bronx.
