New York Yankees take game one on Jeter Day double header

For Judge, one of the Yankees' emerging team leaders, his spot in the starting lineup resulted from years of hard work and constant improvements, but also from the love and dedication of his mom, Patty.

George Steinbrenner's children, Jessica, Hal and Jennifer presented Jeter with the plaques and rings at the beginning of the ceremony.

Saturday: ESPN's Yankees beat reporter, Andrew Marchand, will produce a piece on the only single-digit number the Yankees haven't retired, No. 0. Mattingly was also on the team's coaching staff for several years in the 2000s. But Mattingly's face and voice - greeted by a loud cheer from a packed Yankee Stadium - graced the ballpark's center-field video board.

There's no one more deserving of a plaque in Monument Park from the 90s Yankees dynasty than Derek Jeter.

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

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. "But that was a special moment for me, and I'll never forget that last game".

Chase Headley stopped a 1-for-24 slide with a tiebreaking, bases-loaded triple off Chris Devenski in a six-run seventh inning, and NY rallied to beat the Houston Astros 11-6 Sunday in a doubleheader opener.

At his first big league camp in 1994, he was given No. 74. After slugging a two-run homer in the first game of the series, Correa had two hits and an RBI on Friday and is batting.340 with 11 RBIs in 14 career games against NY.

"I have no clue", Jeter said in an appearance this week on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". And for that answer, you have to remember what day it is.

Bregman, who wears No. 2 in honor of the former Yankees captain, hit his first homer of the season.

“Theres rumors out there that Buck suggested I be No. 2, ” Jeter said.

"So going into spring training in (1996), they were going to give me No. 17", Jeter told YES Network's Jack Curry. "I think sometimes people get ahead of themselves, and there was a story that got way ahead of themselves a few weeks back".

"I might have gotten emotional, but we were back there joking and having a good time with my family", he said.

"I am very fortunate that my son and wife gave me a lovely Mother's Day present, the best present ever", said Rose Kazinetz of Dickson City.

For his part, Jeter posted his own thank you to NY on the Players' Tribune, a "new media company that provides athletes with a platform to connect directly with their fans, in their own words", which Jeter founded in 2014.
