Jeter wrote a thank you letter to NY over at his site, the Players' Tribune, so make sure you check that out.

Due to the doubleheader, the Derek Jeter retirement ceremony has been pushed back a half-hour. Tickets for Saturday's originally scheduled game will not be valid for Sunday's doubleheader. The Derek Jeter ceremony will take place between games, but will begin no earlier than 6:35 p.m.

Also, Jeter didn't show up for A-Rod's final-game event last August, although he did praise Rodriguez in a statement. "Fans should note that Sunday's doubleheader is sold out".

That leaves roughly four minutes to trim off the current world record to achieve maximum running efficiency in a marathon. Kipchoge needed an average of 2:50 per kilometre - an improvement of around 2.5 per cent on Kimetto's record.

Jeter is having his number retired and having his plaque unveiled in Monument Park in between games during Sunday's doubleheader against the Astros in the Bronx. RHP Luis Severino (2-2, 3.40) is the scheduled starter for the Yankees, RHP Mike Fiers (1-1, 5.64) for the Astros. Fans with tickets to today's game will be able to exchange them for any regular season game at Yankee Stadium through the end of the 2018 season.

Charlie Morton and Masahiro Tanaka are expected to start the nightcap.

Sunday's game will be aired on ESPN as part of Sunday Night Baseball and will conclude a four-game set between two of the best teams in baseball at the moment.
