OK. Some things are just meant to be.
Derek Jeter's second at-bat. Every member of the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays standing at the top of the dugout steps. Every fan standing at Yankee Stadium.
Derek Jeter hits a home run for his 3,000th hit!!!
ONLY one other player has ever cranked a dinger for his 3,000th hit - Wade Boggs!
ONLY Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron and Robin Yount made it to 3,000 at a younger age than Jeter, who turned 37 on June 26.
ONLY three other players, Honus Wagner, Cal Ripken Jr. and Robin Yount, have recorded 3,000 hits while playing most of their careers at shortstop.
The HBWHOF tips the cap to Derek Jeter.
...and I liked the big smile from Minka Kelly too...
