Congratulations to Derek Jeter for achieving the rare milestone of 3000 hits. I love this guy. Not only does he reach the milestone, he does it with a home run, goes 5 for 5 AND drives in the game winning run with his team in the middle of a hot division race. Only Jeter. When the spotlight is the brightest, he is always at his best.
My favorite thing about him tho, is he truly is a throwback to when this game actually was our national pastime. In this era of the self absored, "it's all about me" pro athlete, Jeter has remained the consummate professional, always demonstrating that he is honored to be playing the game and doing all the things he can to help his team win. If you're a baseball fan in any way, you gotta feel blessed to be around during the Jeter era. Thanks, Derek.
