The New York Yankees will retire Derek Jeter's No. 2 jersey on May 14 against the Houston Astros at Yankee Stadium, the team announced.

Jeter will also get a plaque in Monument Park. He will be the 22nd player to have his number retired by the team.

With Jeter's number retired, all single digit numbers will be retired by the Yankees.

Jeter played all 20 of his Major League seasons in a Yankee uniform and collected franchise-record 3,465 hits, which also ranks No. 6 all-time in MLB history. He also amassed ‎1,311 RBIs and 260 home runs.

The Yankees have most recently retired Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera's numbers. Jeter won five World Series (1996, '98-99, 2000, '09) with those those teammates.
