Derek Jeter Receives Recognition in Houston
Get ready for New York Yankees to have delayed start times at least one time at each road venue this season.
The pre-game ceremony for Derek Jeter set the first pitch back roughly 10 minutes but was well worth it as the Captain was reunited on the field with handshakes and hugs from Andy Pettitte, Roger Clemens and former Yankees pitcher Mike Stanton.
When Jeter came up to bat in the first inning, Astros manager Bo Porter jumped out of the dugout and signaled his players and bullpen to rise to their feet and honor Jeter.
Jeter grounded out in his first at-bat which is harmless compared to being nailed on the wrist in his 2014 debut just 24 hours earlier.
