Oh how wonderful it was to be in New York the day Derek Jeter got his 3,000th hit off a homer. Hopefully he can stay healthy enough to continue making history.
Looking back on the whole ordeal, I cannot believe the Yankees showed uncertainty before resigning Jeter from free agency. A lot of people mentioned that he had some of his lowest numbers the season before, but I took a look for myself and he had only slipped in a couple of categories.
All in all, Derek Jeter is a living legend and still very capable of putting up his usual numbers. The Yankees should have been more than happy to keep him pinstripes for hopefully the rest of his career. He has been one of the most consistent baseball players of all time even without hitting an alarming amount of long balls.
He bounced back from his injury in no time, even though I though it would really hamper him. He needs to get some rest during the all-star break so he won't wear down too early down the stretch. I was lucky enough to be in the city while he did something that other perennial all-stars never got the chance to. Derek Jeter is one of my personal favorite players so I am glad to see that he can keep it going.
