Derek Jeter’s 3000th Hit is One for the Ages

The New York Yankees’ Derek Jeter, true to his career-long penchant for flair, delivered his historic 3000th hit in the form of a dramatic home run on a day he also went five-for-five at bat and got the game-winning hit. He became only the 28th player in baseball history to achieve the 3000-hit milestone. Soon after, a Harris Poll ranked him as America’s most popular male athlete.
