Derek Jeter Makes Yankees History with a Record 3,000 Hits

Michael Heiman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Yankee captain Derek Jeter earned his 3,000th hit of his career Saturday in a dramatic home run to left field to tie the game against Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium.

Jeter's home run sent his teammates streaming out of the dugout and in from the bullpen to celebrate the historic moment. Fellow teammate Jorge Posada met Jeter at home plate with a bear hug, and every other teammate followed, as the game was put on hold for five minutes of celebration.

The 37 year old became the 28th major league player to get 3,000 hits, and the first to do it wearing a Yankees jersey.
