Video: Derek Jeter Hits Home Run For 3000th Hit

Derek Jeter hits No. 3000 (Suzy Allman for The New York Times)

Love the Yankees or hate them (OK, most of you probably hate them), but Yankees captain Derek Jeter just had a pretty cool moment at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. Jeter hit a ground ball single in his first at bat in the first inning, and in the third inning with no one on and one out, Jeter battled David Price, working a 3-2 count. With the crowd chanting his name, Jeter launched a no-doubt home run for his 3,000th hit, making him only the second player to ever do that (Wade Boggs hit No. 3000 with a home run while with the Devil Rays).
