ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state’s tallest skyscraper outside New York City will be lit up to display Derek Jeter’s No. 2 on the night the Yankee shortstop is scheduled to play his final home game before retiring.

Cuomo announced Wednesday that the 44-story Corning Tower, part of the state office complex in downtown Albany, will display Jeter’s jersey number during Thursday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

The governor is also inviting fans to watch the game on a big screen that will be set up on the Empire State Plaza. Food vendors will on hand to offer traditional stadium fare.

Cuomo says Jeter is a New York icon who played the game with dignity and provided Yankee fans with “timeless memories.”
