Jeter’s No. 2 will be retired on Sunday, and his plaque will be unveiled in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium.

The and are playing a doubleheader on Sunday at Yankee Stadium, but the main event in New York on this day is the jersey retirement ceremony, to be held between games.

Since there is an actual game played before, there is always the possibility that things could be delayed. But the plan is for Derek Jeter Night to start at 6:35 p.m. ET, with the second game of the doubleheader starting no earlier than 7:35 p.m.

ESPN will televise the ceremony as part of , the hour-long pregame show before its broadcast of the second game. Throughout the hour, ESPN will show segments of an interview Jeter did with host Karl Ravech.

Online streaming of the ceremony, as well as the nightcap between the Yankees and Astros, can be seen through .

A whopping 22 different Yankees have had their number retired, more than any other team in baseball. That includes No. 8 retired to honor two different Hall of Fame Yankees catchers — Bill Dickey and Yogi Berra.

He is the Yankees’ franchise leader in several categories, including hits (3,465), doubles (544), stolen bases (358), and games played (2,747). Jeter ranks second in runs scored (1,923), behind only Ruth (1,959) and ranks third in All-Star Games (14) behind Mantle (20) and Berra (18).

“Throughout 20 years in pinstripes, I learned that despite the pace and the pressure, one code truly makes this city go: Get up each day, put on your uniform, go to work, do your best, and don’t make excuses,” . “That’s all New York ever really asks for. And that’s what I tried to do.”
