  1. Watched him since I was 14 years old great respect for Derek Jeter. Miss him but come May it will be exciting to see his Jersey in Yankee stadium

  2. Let's honor this guy who is average in everything and his whole success comes from being in the greatest team in baseball
    Let's make him the bunt king too and give him a second parade.If only Arod wanted to continue playing shortstop instead of 3rd base what would happen to this guy
    Bad character good character, steroids or not ARod is the best player and the most amazing and exciting to watch
    Jeter is boring and mediocre in everything
    But i guess in such a big country as America there are also many people who are average guys that try their best but never achieve greatness(Jeter fans) that's why this guy is popular
    ARod only (the best ever)

  3. You play baseball for a living dude…you arent sending people to the moon and you're not saving lives in the surgery room. Who cares

  4. He put up a seasons worth of stats in his playoff career which is beyond ridiculous. Those records are gonna stand for a long time.

  5. I don't understand when people get mad at Jimmy for not asking tough questions. It's a comedy late night show. There are time and places for hard hitting questions and this just isn't it.

  6. Jimmy needs to stop saying how "great" and "fun" everything is. I love his enthusiasm but please! When you're that amped all the time, you come off as disingenuous and brown-nosing.

  7. What a class act. Both on and off the field. I never was a Yankees fan but I tip my hat to how exceedingly respectable this man is. I wish him the best of luck in the future.

  8. Players Tribune…..what a great thing that's going to be.  Looking forward to it.  Is it all players from all sports or just Yankee players?

  9. Wiki has an article on retired numbers. Here are some excerpts: Such an honor may be bestowed on players who had highly memorable careers, died prematurely under tragic circumstances, or have had their promising careers ended by serious injury.
        The first number officially retired by a team in a professional sport was that of hockey player Ace Bailey, whose number 6 was retired by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1934.
        In rare cases, a number may be retired because of the player's endeavors in other fields. For example, former college football star Gerald Ford's number 48 was retired by the University of Michigan football squad by virtue of his future career as the 38th President of the United States.
        Teams also take numbers out of circulation without formally retiring them.
       Milan's Paolo Maldini's #3 shirt is retired, with the caveat that one of Maldini's sons can wear the shirt if they play professionally for the club.
        Some teams have also retired number 12 in honor of their fans, or the "Twelfth Man".Similarly, the Sacramento Kings and Orlando Magic retired number 6 in honor of their fans, the "Sixth Man''.
         Michigan Wolverines football unretired all of the numbers that it had retired to create legends jerseys worn by it best players.
       League-wide retirements: Jackie Robinson, the first African American player in the modern era of Major League Baseball, had his number 42 retired league-wide in 1997. Every year in MLB,on April 15, the anniversary of Robinson's MLB debut, all players wear 42.
        Wayne Gretzky's number 99 was likewise retired league-wide by the National Hockey League upon his retirement from the game. 
          It seems baseball has some of the most interesting facts regarding retired numbers, here are a few:
        The use of numbers on uniforms to better identify one player from another, and hence to boost sales of scorecards was tried briefly by the Cleveland Indians of 1916. The first team to permanently adopt the practice was the New York Yankees of 1929. By 1932, all sixteen major league clubs were issuing numbers, and by 1937, the leagues passed rules requiring it. 
        The first major leaguer whose number was retired was Lou Gehrig's 4, in July 1939. 
             In cases of franchise relocation, the handling of existing retired numbers is at the discretion of team management. They may decide to continue honoring the retired numbers, including the San Francisco Giants, or they may choose to make a "fresh start" and reissue the numbers, as the Washington Nationals have done. 
         The Los Angeles Dodgers' current policy is only to retire the numbers of longtime club members if they are inducted into the Hall of Fame.
          There is a lobby to have uniform #21 retired in all of baseball to honor Roberto Clemente.
       The Yankees have retired 16 of their own numbers for 17 players/managers (Berra and Dickey wore the same number, 8). Joe Torre's 6 being the most recent. Derek Jeter's number 2 will be the 17th Yankee number to be honored.

  10. Nothing against Jeter, but does Jimmy Fallon know how to interview people?  Everytime I see him, he's basically just telling his guest all the amazing things he/she has done.  Ask a fucking question.
