Yankees' Derek Jeter Answers Reporter's Phone

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

The New York Yankees celebrated Derek Jeter Day yesterday. The longtime shortstop who's retiring was praising Yankees fans at a news conference. Reporters had their phones on a table recording his remarks, and that's when one reporter's husband called. Jeter looked at the caller ID.

GREENE: Jeter set the phone aside and got on with his farewell. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
