Derek Jeter collected his 3000th hit of his career on Saturday July 9th, 2011. The hit was a homerun off of David price. He became the 2nd player to have number 3000 be a homerun. He is the first Yankees player to achieve 3000 hits. He also became the 2nd player to get 5 hits in a game in which he collected the 3000th hit. He also drove in what would be the game winning run in the 8th inning. Unbelievable day for him. One of the few greats left to play the game whose name is synonymous with greatness.
