Even though, I'm a day late on the news, Derek Jeter broke Luis Aparicio's mark of all-time hits by a short stop. Jeter is well on his way to being the Yankee with the most hits ever.
Currently, Jeter sits 60th on the all-time hit list and third among active players - only behind Omar Vizquel and Ken Griffey Jr.
Jeter has received plenty of criticism over the years and, I tend to believe people don't truly understand just how great he is.
When all is said and done, his numbers will put him at the top of the game.
He's not flashy. He's not a power hitter. He came up in a time where chicks dig the long ball, and Jeter isn't that type of player.
However, Yankees fans understand just how valuable he has been to the team and know they are never going to get cheated when Jeter plays.
I know he's getting older and he has less time in front of him than behind him. So, to all the haters: put down that Haterade and enjoy a good player. He's one of the few people are going to remember.
Congrats Jeter. Here's to 1,569 more hits!!! :)
