THE BRONX - News 12 The Bronx asked if residents are more likely to go see the Yankees play since Derek Jeter has announced his plans to retire at the end of the 2014 season.

The Yankees captain has spent 20 years with the franchise and has won five championships over the years. A large crowd was on hand at Yankee Stadium Monday afternoon to watch Jeter’s final Opening Day in a Yankees uniform.

Yankees legends Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Jeter and former catcher Jorge Posada. They were the “Core Four” members of the team’s last five championships.

One Bronx resident on his way to the game said he was excited about going to the stadium this season.

“No one [out of the Core Four] has gone out with a title so I hope this is the year,” he told News 12.
