Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon gave Jeter 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.
Wilpon replied, “No. No. No.”
Jeter has played 87 regular-season games against the Mets heading into the finale of this year’s Subway Series matchup at Citi Field. He announced before the start of the season that this would be his last year as a player.
He hit .368 with 13 homers and 44 RBIs against the Mets going into the wrapup game.
“It doesn’t get any bigger than playing in the World Series against them. I think that was something I think the whole city was pulling for,” he said.
“Well, I won’t blow a save. I know that much,” he said.
