Countdown To Derek Jeter's 3,000th Hit: Jeter Goes 1-For-4, Sits At 2,984

Derek Jeter did one of the things he has always done best Wednesday afternoon. He doubled in his first at-bat and came around to score later on a double by Alex Rodriguez to give the New York Yankees a 1-0 lead. The Yankees went on to win, 4-2.

That was Jeter’s only hit on the day as he went 1-for-4 and now has 2,984 career hits, 16 short of becoming the first player to ever reach 3,000 as a Yankee.

The Yankees are off Thursday before starting a three-game series in Anaheim against the Angels.

There are only a handful of players in baseball history with 3,000 hits for the same organization. Here is the list:

1) Ty Cobb – 3,900 hits with the Detroit Tigers.
