Yankees great Derek Jeter has it all.

Former New York Yankee Derek Jeter waves to fans while standing with his wife Hannah Jeter during a ceremony to retire his number at Yankee Stadium in New York, Sunday, May 14, 2017. Jeter personally picked his ceremony to be on Mother's Day so he can celebrate it with his mother, father, sister, nephew, grandmother, and his pregnant wife, Hannah.

Jeter's records with the team include but aren't limited to five World Series championships, an 11-year run as team captain, 14 All-Star games, 3,465 hits and numerous awards.

"The Captain" is the franchise's all-time leader in hits, stolen bases and games played. "I was asked recently by someone, they said, 'If you could change places with one person, who would it be?' And I say this very humbly, there isn't a person or player I would trade places with as playing now or ever". And I'll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family, ' he continued.

But Jeter, who had his No. 2 jersey retired by the Yankees on Sunday, says there is no news concerning the group's bid, despite Bush saying he is optimistic they can close the deal and buy the team.

George Steinbrenner's children, Jessica, Hal and Jennifer presented Jeter with the plaques and rings at the beginning of the ceremony.

The Yankees and the Astros both wore pink-billed caps in honor of the holiday, and Jeter said that he chose this day to receive the honor to highlight his mother's and family's contribution to his success.

"From everything people have told me, just do it and see what happens".
