Other Yankees were bigger and stronger, many were faster and more athletic, and no one ever said Jeter was the Bombers' best defender.
Sunday's Derek Jeter Night pregame ceremony is still scheduled to start no earlier than 7:35 p.m., but gates will open at 1 p.m. for the doubleheader. Jeter also played under Mattingly when Mattingly was a Yankees coach from 2004-07. Jeter will be the 38 Yankee to be honored with a plaque and the 22 Yankee to have his number retired.
Subtly, that "2 for 1" happy hour reappears, with revelers who all appear to be hoisting bottles of Bud in Jeter's honor.
On the infield grass, the team unveiled a plaque for Derek Sanderson Jeter, with broadcaster Michael Kay listing off his many accomplishments.
Major League Baseball went all-in with the color pink on Sunday to celebrate Mother's Day around the league.
The current generation grew up with Jeter, much like the older generation had guys like Reggie Jackson and Thurman Munson. The same can be said about the other single digit wearers in the new club in Monument Park.
Derek Jeter was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon recently and revealed his pregnant wife, Hannah Davis, scored a lifetime supply of beef jerky.

Bromwich, Proctor axed for World Cup
Bromwich and Proctor said over the weekend they were too drunk to remember the incident, which followed their 30-12 defeat to Australia .
The Stadium was thick with nostalgia, a This-Is-Your-Life journey on the Jumbotron scoreboard that reminded Yankees fans why they fell in love with Derek Jeter in 1996 and never stopped. A 14-time All-Star, the Yankees said Jeter is sixth in baseball history with 3,465 career hits and he tops the Yankees' all-time list in hits, games played (2,747), doubles (544), stolen bases (358), at-bats (11,195), singles (2,595) and hit-by-pitches (170).
"And then I said, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa".
Pitching on six days' rest, Yankees starter Luis Severino got just three outs with his first 44 pitches and was chased after 77 pitches and 2 1/3 innings.
"As far as I'm concerned, and I'm not the decision-maker on this, that captaincy should be retired with No. 2".
No. 2 didn't have any significance to Jeter when he arrived in the big leagues. I want to thank you for myself, having a chance to watch you come into camp and become a great Yankee.
A few weeks later he got a hit in his last time at-bat at the Stadium and beat the Orioles. We went out there day in and day out trying to win, trying to do anything to help the team and more importantly trying to keep our jobs..
"I will have our guys out here, to clap for him and be a part of it", Hinch said. Eventually nothing is next because youre retired, but we all had those same mindsets and thats why I think we had success.
