Video: Derek Jeter 3,000 Hit Milestone

words // Brandon Richard

Earlier today, New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter became the 28th player in Major League Baseball history to record 3,000 hits. Helping instill some of that old Yankee magic in the new Yankee Stadium, Jeter accomplished the feat with a rare homerun driven deep into left field, becoming only the second player in league history to get his 3,000th hit on a homer.

To celebrate Derek’s accomplishment, the Jordan Brand just released a new video called Derek Jeter 3,000 Hit Milestone. The clip takes you behind the numbers to put Jeter’s legendary accomplishment in perspective. Check it out below.
