The news I've been waiting for since 2014. Derek Jeter is BACK with the Yanks (for Old Timer's Day).

When Derek Jeter got inducted into the Hall of Fame and later enshrined into Monument Park (and of course after his Miami GM stint), I'll never forget his video stating that "he'll be doing more with the organization". Our childhood icon, now back in the mix, the elementary kid in my heart was geeking.

Now, we get the first real glimpse of it as fans. It was announced today that the Captain is going to attend Yankees’ Old-Timers’ Day for the first time since his retirement when New York honors the 25th anniversary of its 1998 World Series championship team on Sept. 9.

LET'S GO! Not only will Jeter be in attendance, others from the 1998 team are scheduled to attend include Hall of Famers Mariano Rivera and manager Joe Torre along with Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, Tino Martinez and Paul O’Neill. It's unfortunate that they won't be doing an actual game anymore. I thought moving it to September was going to help, because the mid-summer matchup was too hot for the oldies. But nevertheless, it's nice that Jeter will be back in the ballpark. Hopefully it will continue his momentum. Maybe, they'll announce him as the next GM, and help reengage with the fans who are pretty much checked out for this season. I know, maybe a stretch, but a guy can dream!
