In A Matter Of Days, Derek Jeter Will Climb Three Rungs On The All-Time Hits List!!!
If you haven’t been paying attention, Derek Jeter has been on fire since collecting hit number 3,000 of his career during the first weekend of July.
In fact, in less than two months he has gathered up 55 more hits and he now sits at 3,058.
Earlier this week, Jeter passed Rod Carew. Entering today’s action he was tied with Rickey Henderson. But after collecting three hits in this afternoon’s 22-9 win over Oakland, Derek is now resting in 21st place with Craig Biggio just 2 hits ahead of him.
It should be just a matter of days before Jeter overtakes Biggio for 20th place. And with roughly 30+ games left in the 2011 season, he will likely remain in 20th list for the duration of the season.
Next on the list is Dave Winfield who is at 3,110.
The last few months have been a blast ‘Tracking Jeter’ and I look forward to doing the same in 2012 when he could possibly crack the ‘Top 15’.
Go Get ‘Em Derek!!!
