Jeter goes big for No. 3,000

37-year-old is the first Yankee to accomplish the feat
Derek Jeter jolted himself into historic company, homering off Tampa Bay ace David Price in the third inning Saturday. He became the 28th major leaguer to hit the 3,000-hit milestone and joined former teammate Wade Boggs as the only players to do it with a home run.
True to his nature of staying focused on the game, Derek Jeter followed through on his historic 3,000th hit, a home run, then briskly rounded the bases. But there was no way this moment was going to pass without plenty of fanfare.
Derek Jeter was mobbed by his teammates with hugs after the 37-year-old’s 3,000th hit, the first New York Yankee ever to achieve the feat.
