3000 hits and he does it in style with a home run! He is one Yankee that this Mets fan has much respect for!

I'm watching the game of the Week, Sox losing to Twins again, and they said he is the all-time Yankee hit leader. Hard to believe they don't have any other 3,000 hit members. Where are all their Hall of Famers?

Congrats Capt Jeter.....from the "Dive" to the "Flip play" and of course the 5 Championships and now 3000 hits. Unbelieable...this guy is going to stroll into Cooperstown

It is hard for me to believe that he is the first 3,000 hit Yankee with all their storied history and great players. Hats off to Mr. Jeter, and he did it in style. He is surely Cooperstown bound.

Good to hear it! I know he had a rough start to this season. I was a huge Yankee fan growing up. I was very young for the Reggie years, but remember Guidrey and Randolph and many others very well. Mattingly was my guy, and I finally saw them make the first WC in '95 after the big bummer of a strike in '94 and most of my shool-age years seeing them finish 2nd, 3rd , 4th, or 5th in the AL East. Anyway, even though Don retired, the next few years were amazing and Jeter's arrival was a big part of that...another classy guy indeed. I really enjoyed the late '90s with all of the homegrown talent filling pivotal roles. I know most Yankee fans did. But then came "infield in" against the D-Backs and the return of Steinbrenner to his FA grabbing ways and the whole thing started to unravel a bit. Admittedly,I drifted from baseball since then with my life getting more involved with family and baseball was going through the steroid thing, etc. After fantasy Football took over I really couldn't dedicate myself to any other sports I was happy to see Girardi come back and help my old favs get one more, but I haven't watched like I used to......

Thanks for tolerating the digression.

And go Derek Jeter!!! I'll always have lots of great memories

Heck that's the tip of the iceberg. 5 for 5. I can't remember his last 5 for 5 game. And of course the game winning hit. SO he is the only player in major league history to BOTH get his 3,000th hit on a home run AND get 5 hits on the day. One other player has done each but no other player both.

Only 27 players (or is it now 28?) have done it. No other Yankee has. Perhaps DiMaggio might have had he played more than 13 seasons. Winfield did it but not with the Yankees. It's pretty tough. You've got to AVERAGE 200 hits a year for ten years just to get to 2,000. 200 hits a year for 15 years to get 3,000. That's a lot of hits.

He would have been even if he missed the 3,000 mark. But he will be a first ballot shoe in now. His biggest accomplishment as far as I am concerned is playing in 7 world series and winning 5 of them. And he was an integral part of all of them. Still in my opinion there is one current Yankee who is even greater than Jeter and that is Mariano Rivera. We will NEVER see his likes again. Also a total class act.

One correction. Unfortunately Don did NOT play in the 95 WS. The Yankees were beaten in the opening round in 5 games by the Seattle Mariners. Don played great in that series though. I feel sorry for him because his career is literally sandwiched by two dynasties and he was part of neither. He is the only truly great Yankee to never win a world series.

coming from a die hard White Sox fan - Congrats to one of the best Yankees of all time on his 3000th hit. A class act through & through

Glad the young man that caught the ball has more class than you apparently do since he gave it to the Yankees.

Class? I'm not the one who tore down Yankee and Shea stadiums so the owners can "give it to the fans".
BTW, I watched Dereks first at bat. Two strikes at the knees, right down the middle called balls to run the count full. But hey, when your Jeter, you get 5 strikes every at bat.Here's what Yanks G.M. Brian Cashman said about fans who had tickets for Friday nights rainout.
"Except it would have cost them a huge amount of money, losing the gate for one of the games, and there is almost no circumstance in which the Yankees are going to choose sentiment over big bucks.

As GM Brian Cashman said, "We're a baseball business."
Which is exactly my original point. The ball caught by the fan is worth six figures. Looks like he got Cheetered.

Man no offense but you're like a ball game on a rainy day.

Perhaps I was a bit harsh but I think it was a cool thing for that guy to do. Very cool.

And the Yanks would NOT have lost a gate. It would have been a day-night doubleheader. Two gates.

Regarding the new stadiums, I've never been to Shea so I can't comment on that. But I was at Yankee Stadium for the first time 10 years ago and thought the place was past its time then. Time moves on.

As a true baseball fan its nice to see milestones reached and broken.. watching Ripken break Lou Gehrigs record total class act and the next class act short stop Derek Jeter, whom happens to play for the New Yawk Yankees..do it instyle 5 for 5 a home run for # 3,000. and the winning RBI ta boot..One of those great moments day...The somber reminder was when he reached 3.ooo he tied Roberto Clemente.. who had so many more hits on his bat!!!!!!!!

Agreed. What's a couple of hundred thousand to a team with the highest payroll in baseball?

Get a bidding war by calling Steiner Sports for an offer. What do you think Steiner would sell that ball for? With Dereks career in NY, that ball is easily worth more than the Bonds home run ball. I don't think 250- 300k is too high a value. I think Cooperstown museum gives you 200k tomorrow if you offered them the ball.

Of course it was cool for him to do and the team could have done something more for him, at least give him season tickets or autographed memorabilia. As for the rain out my understanding is the makeup was the call of the Devil Rays, not the Yanks. The Yanks were willing to do it.

As an aside Derek is the 4th youngest player to reach 3,000. 4,000 is almost definitely out of reach. I doubt he is going to play into his mid 40's as Rose did.

That young man is definitely a class act. I read an article stating that 250k would've been a likely {low} starting point had he chose to keep the ball. But jeez, he could have at least got lifetime seats, or maybe just a tad bit more compensation in one way or another. But, I think the young man's actions will pay off for him somewhere, sometime down the road of life. I hope so.
