NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets have honored Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter before his final regular-season Subway Series game.
Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon presented Jeter with a No. 2 subway-tile mosaic featuring Mets and Yankees colors. The team also gave the Yankees captain a cake by the ''Cake Boss'' with a No. 7 and No. 4 train and Jeter's number.
On behalf of the Mets Foundation, Wilpon made a donation of $22,222.22 to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation.
Jeter has played 87 regular-season games against the Mets heading into this year's Subway Series finale Thursday night at Citi Field. He announced before the start of the season that this would be his last year as a player.
Jeter was the MVP of the 2000 World Series when the Yankees beat the Mets in five games.
