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.
