Adrian Tyler Clippard Authentic Jersey Beltre is closing in on 3,000 career hits, but he’ll be hard-pressed to do it in more dramatic fashion than New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter did six years ago today. Jeter became the first Paul O'neill Authentic Jersey player to reach 3,000 hits with the Yankees when he homered against Rays starter David Price in the third inning. Jeter, Wade Boggs Michael Pineda Youth Jersey and Alex Rodriguez are the only players to homer for their 3,000th hit. Jeter's home run capped an intense eight-pitch at-bat and served as a major pressure-release for the Yankees captain. Jeter recorded four http://www.zooperroquets.com/matt-holliday-jersey-c-1_29.html other hits that day, becoming the second player to have five hits in the same game in which he recorded his 3,000th hit (the other is Craig Biggio). In the eighth inning, Jeter had the game winner, a single up the http://www.zooperroquets.com/michael-pineda-jersey-c-1_44.html middle against Rays reliever Joel Peralta. It was a typical Jeter grounder up the middle, and after the game then-Rays manager Joe Maddon lamented that he didn’t try a five-man infield, because he’d have put his fifth man right in the spot where the ball was hit. Jeter made his mark http://www.zooperroquets.com/jon-niese-jersey-c-1_21.html as a tough hitter to defense. He finished with 3,465 hits, which ranks sixth all time and is the most of any player to debut in the last 50 years.
