Where does Derek “I date starlets only” Jeter rank on the list of best N.Y. Yankees hitters in history? You, my dear readers, will soon find out.
This baseball conglomerate founded in 1903 and once owned by CBS—the all-seeing eye—has given baseball fans plenty of sluggers, but Jeter is the first hitter to reach 3,000 hits in franchise history.
He accomplished the feat by going five-for-five in the Bronx last Saturday afternoon.
I’ve chronicled a list of some of the best hitters ever to play for the Yankees—Jankees as I’m known to lovingly call them. Tee hee. Don’t think it’s funny? Yes, no. Read on, regardless.
Jeter’s 3,000th hit was a big fly that left the yard over the left-field wall. Now, all that’s left is for you to get fly and flip the switch to start this fly slide show.
