Derek Jeter’s Climb To 3,000 Hits
Unless you are living under a rock, you know that the Yankees’ captain, Derek Jeter is closing in on one of baseball’s greatest offensive achievements – 3,000 hits.
My favorite ‘baseball club’, ‘Club 3,000’ is the easiest way to separate the greatest hitters that the game has ever witnessed from the rest of the players.
I love ‘Club 3,000′ and I think that Derek Jeter’s eventual entry into the club is a worthy one.
So, since we will not have another player entering the club for at least another season or two, I wanted to do something special for Jeter….
I will provide a summary of each and every game Jeter plays in between now and when he hits #3,000. Since he is just ten hits away from that mark, I am expecting that this mini-series will only last 10-12 days. But who knows, Jeter can rack up a few multi-hit games and be there by the end of the week or he can go on a terrible slide and not reach 3,000 for another month.
Either way – ’30-Year Old Cardboard’ will be there.
Stay tuned. And thanks for reading!!
