History! Jeter Homers for His 3,000th Hit

First Yankee to Achieve the Milestone

(New York, NY) – Well fortunately DJ ended the drama early with a single in his first at bat and a towering homer into the left field stands his next time up to reach the famous 3,000 hit plateau.  His 3rd homer of the season tied the game at 1-1 and the answer to the trivia question is:  Tampa’s David Price was the pitcher.  For those that like numbers:  No. 2 got his 2nd hit of the day and he did it at 2 PM.

The FNY team was ready to see it last night but the rain changed that.  That being said congrats to the Captain from Section 430 on a well deserved feat and his career to date.

Post Note:  Jeter would end the day 5-5 with the game winning RBI in the 8th as the Yanks went on to take the game 5-4 over Tampa.  Mariano got his 22nd save while David Robertson (2-0) picked up the win.  It was an instant Yankee Classic for the YES network.
