We all wondered when the Yankees were going to retire Derek Jeter‘s No. 2. Every season passed by and there wasn’t a retirement ceremony for the former Yankees captain.
Well, there is now.
The New York Yankees announced they are going to retire Jeter’s No. 2 and give him a plaque in Monument Park on May 14, 2017, which is on Mother’s Day.
Once the Yankees retire Jeter’s number, no Yankee will wear numbers one through ten. In fact, the first wearable number would be No. 11…which is already taken. Sorry.
Tickets are not yet available for individual purchase. If you would like a ticket for the May 14th game, the Yankees recommend getting a partial-ticket or full-season plan.
