The New York Yankees announced on Tuesday that they will retire their Derek Jeter‘s #2 in a ceremony on Mother’s Day, May 14th at the Stadium.

The Yankees beloved captain and 5-time World Series Champion, will become the 22nd player and first since three other members of the Yankees championship run in the late 90’s into early 00’s had their numbers retired.  Bernie Williams, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte each had their numbers retired in 2015.

Jeter, who was a 14-time All-Star, holds the All-time record for a Yankees player with 2747 games, 11,195 at bats, 3465 hits, 544 doubles, 358 stolen bases, and second only to Babe Ruth in runs with 1923.

A true Legend of the game will be rightfully honored in prelude to his soon to be induction in the Hall of Fame in 2020.
