    Derek Jeter, shortstop of the New York Yankees, has just gone

    into the record books.

    He hit his 3000th hit.....and it was a HomeRun!

    All the best, Captain!

    They just interviewed the guy who caught the 3000 hit home run ball. He gave up the ball because he said he wanted Jeter to have it ...asked for nothing

    Yankees gave him luxury seats for the rest of the year, signed jersey, ball, bat

    Jeter finished the day five for five with a HR for 3000th hit and drove in the game winning run

    Talk about doing it in style
