One more hit will put Derek Jeter ahead of the Lou Gehrig's Yankee's hitting record……..

The popular New York Yankee franchise player has 2,721 career hits………he needs one more to move ahead in the all time Yankees hitting record, which was set in 1937……….

Update: Derek Jeter got  his 2,722 hit Friday, (thus passing Gehrig) Septemeber 11, 2009 against Orioles Pictcher  Chris Tilman, in his second at bat in the third inning……..the 46,771 people in the crowd gave the  New York Yankee’s star a standing ovation…….

  1. I happen to agree with your buddy…Mike Francessa…when he says that this milestone in Derek Jeters career is no big deal. What makes Derek Jeter a Yankee great is not so much his numbers, which are very good, but not as good as other Yankee greats (Ruth, Dimagio,Gherig and Mantle), is that he is simply a winner, a leader and a clutch player.
