VIDEO: Derek Jeter Delivers Speech To Yankee Stadium Crowd

The rain held out for our beloved #2 which made the night even more special. After all the stars were announced, everyone from Joe Torre to the remaining core four...Jeter made his way onto the field hand in hand with his wife Hannah Davis and the entire stadium erupted in cheers while Frank Sinatra's 'My Way' played. He accepted his plaque and gave a very heart felt speech. 

He said:  “I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports,” he said. “When you play here in New York for 20 years, I learned that time flies, memories fade, but the family is forever. And I’ll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family.”
