(Bronx, NY) -- "Derek Jeter Day" in New York will be remembered as one of the most elaborate player ceremonies ever. Retiring Yankee captain Derek Jeter was honored before Sunday's game against the Royals, with the festivities lasting nearly an hour. Among those on hand were NBA legend Michael Jordan, baseball Hall of Famers Cal Ripken Jr., Reggie Jackson and Joe Torre [[ TORE-ee ]], plus new commissioner Rob Manfred. Jeter was presented with numerous gifts, including a check for 222-thousand-222-dollars and 22 cents for his Turn 2 Foundation. The Yankees also unveiled a 30-foot banner of the 40-year-old shortstop, and three NASA astronauts tipped their cap to Jeter from space.
