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


There are classy Yankee fans?

Come on dawg this cat threw away a winning lottery ticket. He's an embarrassment to capitalism and the american spirit of doing anything to make a dollar.

es he did throw away a winning lottery ticket, but it was his to toss and I have respect for him.

I was shocked when I read that actually, as I was expecting to read that the fan has yet to contact Jeter or the Yankees to discuss the ball, like many wereplanning to do with A-Roids #600 HR

Jeter is the 4th youngest player to reach the 3000 hit plateau.

 

Ty Cobb (34 years, 244 days)
Hank Aaron (36 years, 101 days)
Robin Yount (36 years, 359 days)
Jeter (37 years and 13 days)

Number 5 on the list is Pete Rose (37 years, 21 days) .
However, there's no way Jeter breaks Rose's record.
The following season at age 38, Rose batted  .331 with  208 hits.

That's a stupid fan.. He had at least 100K on his hands low-balling it and he gave it away to his precious Yankee hero who could care less about him...

What a goof..

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


I find it harder to believe that he is the only Yankee to reach 3000 hits. Seems like they should have many more with all those historic figures.

I guess when you factor in the season are longer now, and guys like Gehrig and Mantle and Mattingly broke down, and Ruth and DiMaggio started their Yankee careers late, it makes sense.  The only other guys that would have a shot would be Yogi Berra or Bernie Williams, but none of those guys hit for a high enough average to get there.

DiMaggio also served in the Military.

And the thing is, he still has the potential for a big payday, if he wants it. You know the 4 tickets management gave him are going to be good seats. For sake of argument, let's say the four total face value is $500. If he wants to sell those seats for the rest of the season's home games, that's around $20k right there. And that's not even counting the memoribilia. I'm sure he got a bunch of crap signed by Jeter. If he wants to turn around and sell that, I'm sure he'd pocket some big cash there as well.

That is true as well, and I would not blame him at all if he wanted to sell some of those tickets for extra cash either.  Hell I wouldn't be surprised if that fan also isn't given a set of tickets to 1 game in each round of the playoffs and even the world series if they make it either, as I am sure Jeter would make sure the fan got to see those games as well.

I wonder if the ball will remain with Jeter or will go to the HOF in Cooperstown, considering its only the second time #3000 came from a HR, so it is a historic ball.

The fan was given tickets to all games including playoffs for the rest of the season.

After the game yesterday they sent the cameras to the clubhouse area and Jeter had a "receiving line" of greeters.  That kid was first on it.  Jay-Z was second.  Jay-Z said the kid was an idiot for giving up the ball for free.  :)
