Derek Jeter's adorable nephew is tipping his cap again at Yankees' ceremony

"I have a lot of admiration and respect for how he went about his business", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.

There is no attempt here to make Jeter into more than he was because the Yankees will retire his No. 2 on Sunday. For some reason and as much as I wanted to, I just couldn't hate Derek Jeter.

The retirement of Jeter's number also signifies the end of a special era in Yankee history. "The Flip" play in game 3 of the 2001 ALDS against the Athletics is still one of the best plays I've ever seen. Jeter's impact will be felt on the visitors' side, too, as former teammates and former opponents but most of all as fans.

Drafted sixth overall by NY in 1992, Jeter retired after the 2014 season at age 40 with a.310 career batting average over 2,747 regular season games.

Mets relievers - NY has now lost four straight after its bullpen spoiled a decent start by Jacob deGrom.

Introduced by a recording of late Yankee Stadium public address announcer Bob Sheppard - it was played before Jeter's at-bats following Sheppard's death in 2010 - Jeter wore a blue three-piece peak-lapel suit, white collared shirt and no tie. A year later, he was the starting shortstop, a position he held until retiring in 2014.

It's incredible to think that Jeter hasn't played in a Major League game in nearly three years. Their fathers became friendly while traveling the country to watch their sons play in high school all-star games and showcase events leading to the 1992 draft. Between 2003 and 2004, there was nothing like watching a Sox and Yankees game.

His plaque begins: "As the cornerstone of five World Series championship teams, Jeter was a leader on the field and in the clubhouse, setting an example for his teammates with his uncompromising desire for team success".

Well, sort of. Because you'll recall that last Friday's 18-inning affair against the Cubs wasn't a "real" doubleheader, but you get the idea.

"So going into spring training in (1996), they were going to give me No. 17", Jeter told YES Network's Jack Curry.

It seems hard to believe that we are already in a third major league season without Derek Jeter, but the future Hall of Fame shortstop will be back in the national spotlight on Sunday, getting his jersey retired by the New York Yankees.

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. "We'll be on the top step tipping our hat to him".
