Just call him DJ3K.
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter recorded his 3,000th hit in dramatic fashion Saturday, homering on a 3-2 pitch from Tampa Bay southpaw David Price in the third inning to become the 28th member of the 3,000-hit club.
He is the first Yankee to tally 3,000 hits all in pinstripes.
Jeter quickly rounded the bases and was mobbed by his teammates at home plate, where a celebration ensued and fans, teammates and even the Rays players themselves cheered on “The Captain.”
He also singled in the first to get to 2,999 and doubled for hit No. 3,001 in the fifth inning. His home run was his first at-bat with a shot at No. 3,000
