Derek Jeter Passes 3,000 Hits For The Second Time
Jeter's 3,000 hits now "official."
Derek Jeter got what, by my count, was his 74th hit of the season, a dramatic home run to put him at 3,000 on the official statistics (Wade Boggs is the only other player to accomplish this particular feat).
In reality, Jeter crossed the 3,000 threshold sometime last year. But, his 185 hits in 14 postseasons “don’t count.” So the fanfare was delayed until today. Congratulations anyway, sir.
