They also dedicated a plaque in his honor that will be placed in Monument Park behind center field. One other Astro has a small connection to Jeter, too: outfielder George Springer, who grew up in northern CT as an admitted Red Sox fan but got to see a lot of Jeter watching that rivalry.
"He brings that winning mentality", retired Yankees catcher Jorge Posada, a South Florida resident, told the Daily News. Before the ceremony, special guest after special guest had gushed about how calm Jeter always was in the biggest games, in the toughest spots, on the largest stages in sports. "I'm excited, but at the same time I'm nervous". "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. The No. 0 is available, but the Yankees have never issued it, though manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman said they are not opposed to doing so.
Houston, a big league-best 25-12, had been trying to move 15 games over.500 for the first time since the Astros went 89-73 in 2005 and won their only NL pennant.
Toby Keith to perform men-only concert in Saudi Arabia amid Trump trip
Saudi Arabia is making every effort to dazzle and impress President Donald Trump on his first overseas trip. Also he will meet with President Macron of France, newly elected.
Clippard spent 2008-14 with Washington so he only faced Jeter once, but it's an at-bat he'll never forget. "He probably doesn't even remember it, but for me that's awesome".
"From everything people have told me, just do it and see what happens", he added of impending fatherhood.
Tanaka (5-2) left to jeers with NY trailing 8-0, the most runs he allowed in his major league career.
Warriors: Conference finals schedule vs. Spurs set
While he still keeps in touch with Curry and others, Lee is downplaying any potential nostalgia from his time with Golden State. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 106.6 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allowing 99.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting.
"You get chills watching some of those moments: the flip, the home runs, the jump throws in the hole", said Bregman, whose only disappointment was he did not get to meet Jeter.
During Jeter's remarks - which he later said were off the cuff - he emphasized how thankful he was. He is the Yankees' career leader in hits (3,465), games played (2,747), at-bats (11,195), doubles (544) and stolen bases (358), and retired as the team's longest-tenured captain. He ushered in one of the greatest eras in Yankee history. So as passionate as he was about the game, how he played it and how he prepared for it, I'm sure whatever he wants to go into, he'll be similar. I prided myself in my career to be prepared at all times.
