Notablog readers don't need to be reminded that Derek Jeter is one of my favorite Yankees of all time.
Well, the Yanks are currently losing to the Kansas City Royals, 7-5; the game is in rain delay. But this much is official: Derek Jeter started the evening with 1,999 career hits, and he collected two more, putting his total at 2,001. That makes Jeter only the eighth Yankee in the team's illustrious history to collect 2000 or more hits.
And Go Yanks!
Update: Uh, yeah, the Yanks did end up losing that game, 7-6.
