Derek Jeter homers for his 3,000th hit

Yesterday in the Bronx, Derek Jeter collected hit number 3,000 the way he has collected so many others. Odds were that number 3,000 would probably come off of an inside fastball that he would fight off, and drop into right field like so many of his other hits have.  But that would be too boring.

In Jeter’s first at bat, he singled to left field for this 2,999th career hit.  El Capitan wasn’t messing around today, you could tell it was time to get this over with.  Before the at bat that could possibly produce the magical hit, the ball boy had to deliver the specially marked Jeter baseballs what were stamped with a serial number to assure their authenticity.   Always one for the dramatics, Jeter fouled off two straight with a full count as 56,000 fans stood on their feet.  Finally on pitch number eight of the at bat, David Price threw a curveball that Jeter waited on, and deposited into the left field stands.
