Apr 16, 2014; Bronx, NY, USA; New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (2) carries the Nelson Mandela replica plaque during the Jackie Robinson ceremonies as the New York Yankees take on the Chicago Cubs in 2nd game of the day/night double header at Yankee Stadium. (William Perlman-The Star-Ledger)
The plaque reads:
"Nelson Mandela 1918-2013. Nobel Peace Prize winner and global leader whose timeless efforts dismantled apartheid in South Africa. As President of his country, he would use South Africa’s enthusiasm for sports as a unifying force for reconciliation. On June 21, 1990, he made a memorable visit to the original Yankee Stadium and proclaimed, "You know who I am. I am a Yankee."
