Tonight’s the Night!

That’s right, I said it. Tonight Derek Jeter, who is currently tied with Lou Gehrig at 2,721 hits, will surpass that mark and become the all time hits leader in Yankee history. I mean come on, they’re playing the Orioles for crying out loud. He’ll probably blow the record away.

But that got me wondering how the most decorated franchise in baseball history has never had a player reach 3,000 hits entirely as a Yankee. Seems odd, doesn’t it? I mean there are only 27 players in the 3,000 hit club, but nine of them played their entire careers with only one team… and none of those nine were Yankees.

That’s until Derek gets there, because we all know he’s going to. Congratulations Captain… even if it is a bit premature.
