Derek Jeter Makes Tie For No. 6 On All Time Hit List
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner Friday night for sixth place on the all-time hit list, with an infield single in the first inning as the Yankees took on the Cleveland Indians Friday night.
It was Jeter’s 3,430th career hit. He scored one run as the Yankees beat the Indians 10-6.
Here is the all-time hits leaderboard, as compiled by CBS Sports.
1. Pete Rose, 4,256
2. Ty Cobb, 4,191
3. Hank Aaron, 3,771
4. Stan Musial, 3,630
5. Tris Speaker, 3,515
t-6. Derek Jeter, 3,430
t-6. Honus Wagner, 3,430
8. Carl Yastrzemski, 3,419
9. Paul Molitor, 3,319
10. Eddie Collins, 3,314
With 47 games left in the regular season after Friday night, CBS Sports baseball writer Mike Axisa writes that Jeter is very unlikely to catch Speaker for fifth place on the all-time list. Eighty-five hits in 47 games is 293-hit pace across 162 games.
But, Axisa wrote, there is certainly no shame in being sixth all-time.
