The Yankees retired the Iron Horse's No. 4 on July 4, 1939, during the now famous "Lou Gehrig Day," making him the first Major League player to enjoy such an honor. Gehrig will forever remain the only player in Yankee history to have worn No. 4 because his number was retired only two months after his final game.
New York Yankee Derek Jeter earned the nicknames "Captain Clutch" and "Mr. November" due to his outstanding play in the postseason. Throughout his career, he was a reliable contributor to the Yankees' franchise successes and has a .321 batting average in the World Series.
