Baseball's Greatest Games: Derek Jeter's 3,000th Hit
At some shining point after his stellar 1996 AL Rookie of the Year Award-winning season, and at some point as he accumulated five World Series championships with the New York Yankees, at some point after he became the all-time hit leader of the Bronx Bombers, it was clear that 3,000 hits was not a matter of "could he" but "when will he" reach the milestone.
On a picture-perfect afternoon in Yankee Stadium, before a capacity crowd energized with expectation, "the Captain", "Mr. November" carved his name into the record books. With his usual flair for the dramatic, Jeter stroked hit #3,000 with a solo home run to ignite a wondrous celebration with his teammates and his adoring fans. But the exceptional day went beyond the mile marker of 3K as Jeter ended the affair 5/5 - five hits in five at bats, the last producing the game-winning run.
