Gehrig was the first to have his number retired; Jeter's #2 will be the last of the single-digits. And he's almost certain to join Gehrig in the HoF eventually.)all the starting 1Bs.

As long as you stayed with the herd and headed right to the subway you'd be fine, but don't stray.the Reggie Jackson 3 pitch/3 homer WS game of 1977
After that game, I had a friend who was all gung-ho to do up a diagram of that play, get it printed onto t-shirts with "WWJD? - What Would Jeter Do?" beneath it, and sell them out of the back of a van at the Stadium. For various reasons, it didn't happen.the Jeter Flip game.

derFunkenstein wrote:No, I don't think so, I just am kind of surprised he doesn't want to play the field. I "get" that hey, he played SS last at Yankee Stadium or whatever, but at the same time, the dude is a fierce competitor. I was just surprised he'd want to limit his last 3 games that way.
