    He entered the 3,000 hit club with an exclamation point.

    Only Wade Boggs ever got 3,000 with a home run.

    Jeter has also collected hit #3,001 passing the late great Roberto Clemente into 27th place all time.  Of all the players to have ever played Jeter is #27 in hits.  By the end of the season he could well be in the top 20 all time.

      Jeter currently ranks 22nd all time in runs scored.  By the end of the season he could well be in the top 20 all time.  Arod is currently the only active player ahead of him.

      It is conceivable that he will be ranked top 10 all time in hits and runs scored by the time he retires.

      Truly a wonderful player to have watched play all these years.
