NEW YORK -- The Yankees have announced that they will hold a special pregame ceremony to honor the career of team captain Derek Jeter on Sunday, Sept. 7.

All fans in attendance for the Yankees' game vs. Kansas City will receive a limited-edition commemorative coin that will recognize the occasion. Further details about the ceremony will be announced at a later date, the team said.

Sixty-seven regular-season games now remain in Jeter's final season. The Yankees' final regular-season home game is scheduled for Sept. 25 against the Orioles. New York completes the regular season on Sept. 28 against the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

As the countdown continues, Jeter reached another career milestone on Friday. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Friday marked Jeter's 2,610th career start at shortstop, passing Omar Vizquel (2,609) for the all-time Major League record.

Jeter has now appeared in 2,624 career games at shortstop, and will finish his career trailing only Vizquel (2,709) on baseball's all-time list. Jeter has made the most appearances at any single fielding position without having played another position in Major League history.
