Baseball season is winding down, which means there are only a few home games left to see New York Yankees’ captain Derek Jeter in the pinstripes.
The Yankees recently announced a special pregame ceremony to honor his career on Sunday, Sept. 7. All fans in attendance for the Yankees’ game vs. Kansas City will receive a limited-edition commemorative coin that will recognize the occasion. Tickets for this game area available here
In his final season, Jeter continues to reach new milestones. Earlier this month, Jeter moved past Honus Wagner to take over the sixth spot on baseball’s all-time hits list with a sixth-inning single in front of a sold out crowd of 47,376 at Yankee Stadium. This was Jeter’s 3,431st hit of his career, and with that, he now has more hits than any other shortstop in history.
“Honus Wagner, he is the last one on the list who has played shortstop,” Jeter said. “That one hits home a little bit. Anytime you pass guys that have had the careers that they’ve had, it is kind of overwhelming.”
The Yankees will be back in the Bronx on Tuesday, Aug. 19 to face the Houston Astros.
