Get Your Tix Now! New York Yankees Will Celebrate “The Captain”
It's been five years since #2 has been back home at The Stadium. Things have certainly been tumultuous for the Hall of Fame shortstop over the last month, following his resignation as President of the Miami Marlins. However, some home cookin' in September will probably make things a little better.
The New York Yankees announced on Thursday that Derek Jeter will to return to Yankee Stadium on September 9th when the Pinstripes will celebrate the 2020 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee with Derek Jeter Hall of Fame Induction Tribute Night. The first 40,000 guests in attendance will receive a replica of Jeter’s Hall of Fame plaque, courtesy of Bank of America.
#2 is arguably the greatest living New York Yankee. The Captain retired as the Yankees’ all-time leader in hits with 3,465, games played with 2,747, doubles with 544, stolen bases with 358 (yes stolen bases!) and at-bats with 11,195, tallying eight 200-hit seasons. His career hit total remains the sixth highest in Major League Baseball history.
According to Bryan Hoch of mlb.com, The Captain will throw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch. The Yankees will be taking on the Tampa Bay Rays that evening in what could be an important game in the American League playoff picture at that time. Hoch noted, "It will mark Jeter’s first appearance in the Bronx since May 14, 2017, when his No. 2 uniform was retired and installed in Monument Park."
The night will feature a very cool display of Derek Jeter’s Cooperstown plaque will be available for fans to view throughout the game in the New York Yankees Museum, which is located on the 200 Level of Yankee Stadium near Section 210.
