ABOVE VIDEO: Derek Jeter – Thank You, New York

(FOX NEWS) – Derek Jeter held a microphone and spoke without notes to the crowd that filled sold-out Yankee Stadium.

His No. 2, the last of the single digit pinstripes, had been retired and a plaque in his honor dedicated that will be placed in Monument Park alongside tributes to Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Berra and the rest of the team’s greats.

“There isn’t a person or player I would trade places with that’s playing now or ever,” he told the fans.

Three years removed from a big league career that spanned 1995-2014, Jeter personally picked Mother’s Day for his tribute.
