Jeets Goes Off, Goes 5-For-5 For 3,003

((HT: MLB/YES/youtube))

The New York Yankees Derek Jeter became the 28th player to be a part of the 3,000 hit club. He's the first Yankee and the first shortstop to go there and joins Eddie Collins as the only player to have 3,000 hits with 5 championship rings.

His accomplishments are ridiculous and he's the third-youngest to get to the mark.
So, you figure Jeets would do it in style in the Bronx.

Sho'nuff, he went berserk and joined Wade Boggs as the only other player to get hit 3,000 for a homerun.

Here's Michael Kay calling history

And Craig Biggio is the only other player to get his 3,000th hit as part of a five-hit day...
