On July 22nd, 2014, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter broke yet another Yankee all time record in his last season before retirement. Jeter passed Lou Gehrig for the most doubles in Yankee history Tuesday night; its just another record he can cross off his list. The Captain already leads one of the most storied franchises in Plate Appearances, At Bats, Hits, Singles, Doubles, Stolen Bases, and Games Played.
Don’t write him off yet he can still break one more record as he is second in runs scored (49 behind Babe Ruth). Mr. November is also top 10 in Batting Average, Home Runs, Extra base hits, and RBI’S in Yankee history. The now 40 year old Jeter made it clear before his season began that this will be his last ride, and he has certainly made it a season to remember. Weather its breaking records or making his presence felt in the all star game.
The Yankees are most defiantly in the hunt for the post-season this year and Jeter would love nothing more than to bring the 28th world series title to the Bronx. To end it all tonight, newly-acquired third baseman Chase Headley hit a walk-off single to bring in Brian Roberts in the bottom of the 14th inning to beat the Texas Rangers 2-1.
