Derek Jeter sets new Yankee hit record!2722

Derek Jeter is no longer the Prince of New York. He’s the Hit King.

The shortstop passed Lou Gehrig on the Yankees‘ all-time hits list on Friday night, singling against Orioles rookie Chris Tillman in the third inning.

Jeter was the center of attention from the moment the Yankees took the field, as the crowd waited out an 87-minute rain delay in order to witness history. Jeter received a loud ovation after catching a pop up to end the top of the first, then fans went crazy when he emerged from the dugout in between innings to prepare for his first at-bat.

Flahsbulbs popped continuously from the second he stepped into the batters box, as the crowd buzzed with anticipation. Jeter took Tillman’s first pitch for a called strike, then took a big hack at his second offering, falling into an 0-2 count.

Jeter took a ball, then fouled one back to the backstop, but Tillman caught him off-guard with a curveball, striking him out.

Jeter led off the third inning for his second at-bat, as Tillman started him off with a pair of balls. Jeter lined the 2-0 pitch past first baseman Luke Scott to move past Gehrig, a hit virtually identical to the one that tied Gehrig’s mark in the seventh inning on Wednesday.

The entire Yankees dugout emptied on to the field to congratulate Jeter, with Alex Rodriguez reaching him first, giving him a big hug. Each of Jeter’s teammates took their turn to show their support for him, then he acknowledged the crowd with a few tips of his helmet. Orioles players stood on the top step of their dugout, applauding Jeter for his accomplishment….

Jeter singled in the seventh inning for his third hit Wednesday night against Tampa Bay, matching Gehrig with 2,721 hits in a Yankees uniform.

After entering the game in an 0-for-12 slump, his longest hitless stretch this season, Jeter broke out of the rut with a bunt single toward third base leading off the bottom of the first inning.

With cameras flashing all around Yankee Stadium on every pitch to Jeter, he grounded out in the third inning against Rays starter Jeff Niemann and drove a ground-rule double to straightaway center in the fifth.
