Depending on your appetite for sentimentality, you may have grown tired of these pregame ceremonies for the future Hall of Famer, but this one had added significance because Jeter and his family grew up in Kalamazoo, Mich.
When the public address announcer identified Jeter's family attendees, young Jalen -- in his mother's arms -- took off and raised his cap to the home crowd. Baby captain?
Watch the video in which Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay recaps the scene:
Said Jeter afterward:
