Derek Jeter came ready to play on Saturday, smacking a single in the first inning for his 2,999th hit. The positive tension mounted thereafter, and in the third-inning, Jeter sealed the deal and officially became the 28th member of the exclusive 3,000-hit club when he launched a home-run over the left-field wall off of pitcher Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price. Jeter was wearing the Jordan Jeter Cut Cleat DJ3K during that moment, a special PE colorway introduced by Jordan Brand to commemorate Jeter’s historic achievement. The only other player to make a home-run his 3,000th hit was former Yankee Wade Boggs, who, coincidentally, played for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays during his moment.
