Much respect and congratulations to one of the great Yankees; Derek Jeter is now part of the 3,000 hit club. This is a tremendous accomplishment for Jeter as he was able to do this with the team that drafted him, and when you look at the historic history of the NY Yankees… Derek Jeter will go down as the ONLY NY Yankee to reach the 3,000 club; amazing when you think about all the greats to play for the Yankees: Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle.
In joining the 3,000 hit club Derek Jeter did it in style…
- 3,000th hit, a home run
- Drove in the game winning run in his last at-bat
- Did it at Yankee Stadium
I am not sure you can draw a more perfect story in Hollywood; keep in mind that Jeter had been struggling to hit the ball with any authority this season. But in recent weeks Jeter like the Jeter that always steps up in the playoffs started driving the ball with authority like the Jeter of late 90s. So today’s performance against the Rays was classic… There were no cheap hits and like the Jeter of old, if you make a mistake he will make you pay and he did just that with a HR for his 3,000th hit.
It’s no secret that I am no fan of the NY Yankees and I have been critical of Derek Jeter this winter and thru the 1st half of this season, but I cannot deny how amazing of a day Jeter had today in reaching a glorious milestone.
Even a Yankee hater like myself has to stand-up and applaud a GREAT player like Derek Jeter.
Congrats Derek Jeter aka Mr. 3000 and future 1st ballot Hall Of Famer!!!!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
Well, the myth of Jeter is that he’s The Captain, who makes his entire team better just by playing the field, etc, etc. Which is ridiculous. What’s real and what we should appreciate is that he was a fantastic hitter who managed a passable shortstop defensively. That’s not the legend of Derek Jeter, but his stat-based achievements are very real.
