3000 Hit Club
I get that people love a redemption story. Man screws up, apologizes, reforms himself, and does well. But that’s not what A-Rod’s story is.
Is it 1999? Did Derek Jeter bathe in the fountain of youth in the offseason? He sure is playing like it. Actually, he’s playing better. Since Jeter collected his 3,000th hit, he has hit like a player in his prime, not in his decline.
There is a fire deep inside Derek Jeter that allows him to do the unimaginable time after time. His destiny was forged at a young age, to be a Yankee and represent the pinstripes, his fans and family with pride.
