Derek Jeter two hits away from 3000

Published

on

New York Yankee captain Derek Jeter doubled in the first inning Thursday night to reach 2,998 hits for his illustrious career. He is now two hits shy of becoming the first Yankee in baseball history to record 3,000 hits.

Jeter had four at bats after the first inning double, but was retired each time, as the Yankees lost 5-1 to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Yankee fans stood for each Jeter at bat, urging on the 17 year veteran. “The fans were very loud when I went up to the plate,” Jeter commented.

Both Jeter and Yankee fans want to see Jeter record his 3,000th hit at home. The Yankees have three more home games Friday through Sunday, before heading out on the road.

Jeter is hitting .257 on the season, with just 2 Home Runs and 22 RBIs.
