Hall of Fame member Derek Jeter will attend his first Old-Timers’ Day since retiring in 2014 as the New York Yankees honor the 1998 World Series team next month.

Yankees Old-Timers’ Day is scheduled for Sept. 9 ahead of a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Yankees thus far are expecting 29 members of the 1998 World Series-winning team to participate, including Mariano Rivera, Tino Martinez, Paul O’Neill, Andy Pettitte and manager Joe Torre. The festivities will involve the former players taking part in a roundtable discussion, sharing memories.

No game will be played as it was in many past years.

Jeter, 49, won five World Series with the Yankees. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020.
