Derek Jeter night quickly turned into Astros night at Yankee Stadium, as three Astros went long in Houston's 10-7 victory over the New York Yankees.

Headley rallies Yanks over Astros 11-6 before Jeter ceremony NEW YORK - The Yankees started celebrating even before ceremonies to retire Derek Jeter's No. 2.

The Yankees and the Astros both wore pink-billed caps in honor of the holiday, and Jeter said that he chose this day to receive the honor to highlight his mother's and family's contribution to his success.

"Playing here in NY for 20 years, I learned that time flies, memories fade but family is forever", Jeter said.

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.

That Jeter belongs in Monument Park was a well-deserved, non-debatable foregone conclusion. With a full count, Springer deposited the Masahiro Tanaka offering into none other than Monument Park and the newly mounted Jeter display plaque. With the former captain's No. 2 retired, all single-digit numbers have been put to rest by the Yankees.

Jeter recalled flashing back to the plaques of teammates Bernie Williams, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte unveiled in recent years.

"It's special, man; I mean, just watching him play, being in the same clubhouse with him for that short time in 2007, it was special", Clippard said.

"I got to choose", Jeter said. I chose Mother's Day and the first thing my dad said was, 'What are we going to do on Father's Day?' But my mom especially has been very supportive ever since I was younger, but not just playing baseball.

Jeter grew up in Kalmazoo, Michigan, wanting to be a Yankee. “Hes never told me that personally, but Ive heard that hes said it and I appreciate it if he thought that much of me to give me the number 2.”. "He's one of the game's greatest, and I was lucky enough to play his last season with him". "The house Jeter built", said another, echoing the nickname for the old Yankee Stadium as "The House that Ruth built". "They want change. I think the Marlins, if it happens, it will be a great move for not only the organization but I think the city".
