New York • The Yankees have honored Derek Jeter before the first home game of his final season by reuniting the Core Four that helped the team during a stretch of five World Series titles.

Jeter caught a ceremonial first pitch from Mariano Rivera, and Jorge Posada caught one from Andy Pettitte prior to Monday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Posada retired after the 2011 season, and Rivera and Pettitte at the end of 2013.

Jeter announced in February that his 20th big league season will be his last.

Says Rivera: "The last one standing is Derek."
