Derek Jeter: Yankees Captain Passes Eddie Murray For 11th On All-Time Hits List

With a leadoff homer in the first inning of the New York Yankees' game Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has moved into sole possession of 11th place on the MLB all-time hit list, passing Baltimore Orioles great Eddie Murray.

Jeter leads the majors in hits this season, now with 168, and tied Murray Tuesday night by collecting four hits in five at-bats against the White Sox. Jeter's 3,256 hits make him the active leader in hits. The homer also places Jeter exactly 1,000 hits behind the all-time hits leader, former Cincinnati Reds great Pete Rose, who collected 4,256 in his career.

Jeter also stands less than 400 hits from joining the top four on the all-time hits list.
