Definitely did it in style as you would expect from a guy who always seems to rise to the occasion.  And the homer tied the game.  Amazing moment.

Doubled for hit #3,001.  He needs a triple for the cycle.  Wouldn't that be something.

4 for 4, not a triple (yet) but another single.

Yep. Congratulations to my favorite player of my generation! A true class act.

Congrats to probably the last clean 3000 hit player for a long ass time.  I have never heard any inkling of him cheating ever(drug wise anyways), so this accomplishment is very well earned

Jeter just went 5 for 5 with the score tied in the 8th to give the Yanks the lead.  This is becoming one of the more historic games in history.  And people expected him to limp into 3,000.

1st Yankee to reach 3,000 hits
2nd player to reach 3,000 with a homer (Boggs)
2nd player to have 5 hits in the game in which he hit 3,000 (Biggio)
1st 5-hit game in the new Yankee Stadium
1st 5-hit game for Jeter since 2005

still hard to believe that only 2 out of 28 have hit #3000 as HR's

I guess statistically it makes some sense since most guy who reach 3,000 aren't big home run hitters, and even if you are one the odds are against any one hit being a homer.  For Jeter it was incredibly unlikely since he only had 2 homers all year.

The ball, one of the specially marked ones put in play for the occasion, disappeared into a cluster of fans a few rows beyond the wall. Christian Lopez of Highland Park, N.Y., sitting in Section 236, emerged with the valuable prize. He gladly gave the ball back to the Yankees so Jeter can have the memento, and the Yankees rewarded him with four tickets to every game for the rest of the season and autographed memorabilia. "He earned it," the 23-year-old Lopez told the YES Network. "I'm not going to be the person to take that away from him."


Now right there is a classy fan as well.  I doubt many would simply give it back the way he did
