NY Yankees Number 2 hit number 3000 at 2:00PM with a home run and went 5/5 including a double and the home run as well as a stolen base and the GWRBI. The only Yanke to get 3K hits with the entire career as a Yankee. Lou Gerhig probably would have done it but he got sick before he could do it. Grats Jeter!!!
Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!
The Yankkes gave the guy front row seats for the rest of the year plus autographed memoribilia and he got to go out to dinner with the whole team. The Fed gov't taxed him $14,000 for the Yankees goodwill but two wealthy Yankee fans picked up the bill for him. They may even pay off his student loans!
