Derek Jeter honored by teammates on social media before Yankees retire No. 2
Former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter will have his number retired on Sunday evening.
The Yankees will also unveil a plaque for Jeter in Monument Park.
Earlier in the week, Jeter penned an essay on his website The Players Tribune, which he titled "Thank you New York."
Jeter played 20 seasons for the Yankees and won five World Series while also playing in 14 All-Star Games.
Jeter will be the 22nd player to have his number retired by the Yankees. His No. 2 means that all single-digit numbers have been retired by New York.
Past and present teammates shared photos on social media as tributes to the captain.
The ceremony is expected to begin at about 6:40 p.m. ET.
