Derek Jeter 3000th Hit

On July 9th in the 3rd inning of a sunny afternoon game against the Tampa Bay Rays David Price the Ray's star pitcher threw a 78mph curveball that Derek Jeter belted of left-field.

He is the 2nd player to hit his 3000th hit as a Home Run. Derek Jeter also played well hitting 5 for 5 and leading his team to a 5-4 victory. It took him 9604 At Batts  to hit 3000. Which is 10th alltime in that category. His first it was on May 30 1995 against the Seattle Mariners.

A 23 year old man named Christian Lopez caught and returned the ball without even thinking.

Derek Jeter  career is like an Oscar winning movie.
