Derek Jeter tallied hits 2,999 and 3,000 in his first two at bats against David Price today. The first a liner between shortstop and third, and the second a towering homerun into left field on a 3-2 count.
Needless to say, Yankee stadium gave their Captain a standing ovation for possibly ten minutes. Jeter is the 28th man to reach 3,000 hits, the 11th to do so on only one team, the 4th youngest player in history, the 2nd to do so on a home run, and the 1st in Yankee history.
High fives, hugs and hand shakes all around to Jeter, who Rays commentator Dewayne Staats rightly called a "class act". Congrats Jeter. Now I hope your team loses...
This was Derek Jeter's 3rd home run and David Price's 11th allowed on the season. The game is tied at 1-1 after three innings. Matt Joyce also went long in the second.
