There are several ways to honor someone, and usually those honored are important or special in some way. The situation that will occur in the coming days will be no different. 

Tip of the hat

The New York Yankees announced Tuesday that they will be a patch that displays Derek Jeter's final season logo on all of the players caps and uniforms. This will take place September 7, and will last until the end of the season.

There will also be baseballs that will be used and put in play during the Yankees September 7th game with Jeter logos on them as well. 

Sales pitch

The hats will be available at Yankee Stadium and official Yankees stores only. There are three hats being made along with the baseballs. It has been said that New Era will be selling the limited-edition Jeter hats in a three box set for a total of $150.

It is likely that the items will be a hot commodity and they will sell fast as Jeter has been one of the most beloved and respected players in the league by fans and players since he has joined the major leagues. Jeter has been apart of some great moments and has put together a career that may never be matched again by another shortstop. He was able to play one of the toughest positions in the game, along with spending his entire career with the most demanding team in all of baseball, the New York Yankees.

Final year

Jeter announced this offseason that this will be his final year, and his number 2 will be retired. When his number is retired, there will be no more single-digit numbers left to wear on the back of the Yankees uniform ever. Former Yankee manager and current Hall of Famer Joe Torre recently had his number 6 retired, which left Jeter and his number 2 the final single-digit number in Yankees history. It will be the first time in history that any major league team has all single-digit numbers retired.

The Yankees are currently four games back of the American League Wild Card race. They are going to have to get hot soon in order for the team to think about rewarding their captain with one more legendary playoff game. 

This will also be the first time that a team honors a current player on their team by doing this. For the New York Yankees captain and one of Major League Baseball's all-time greats, it is certainly necessary, because one thing is for certain. There will never be another Derek Jeter.
