Jeter went on to mention how lucky he was to be able to spend 23 years with one organization. He was able to play with some of the best MLB players during his time with the Yankees. Ex-Yankees manager Joe Torre, Mariano Rivera, and the Yankees pitching great CC Sabathia were a couple of Yankee greats in attendance.
