July 9, 2011 at Yankee stadium started as every other gameday did. The grounds crew prepared the field, the vendors stocked their trays with peanuts and crackerjacks, and Derek Jeter, the Prince of the Bronx prepared for his game. Could this be the day?
Indeed it was.
Joining Wade Boggs as the only two Yankees in history to hit number 3000 with a homer, Jeter is the 28th player in history to reach the milestone.
A big congratulations goes to the Bombers Captain and future King of the Bronx…move aside Babe, Jeter will be taking over the throne soon.
You can relive the magic here.
