Derek Jeter ties Honus Wagner for sixth place on all-time hit list
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the all-time hit list with an infield single on Friday night.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the all-time hit list with an infield single in the first inning on Friday night. It was his 3,430th career hit.
Here is the record hit:
That was definitely a nice bit of Yankee Stadium hometown scoring there. I'm sure Jeter has had more than a few base hits called errors over the years. It evens out.
Here is the all-time hits leaderboard:
1. Pete Rose, 4256
2. Ty Cobb, 4191
3. Hank Aaron, 3771
4. Stan Musial, 3630
5. Tris Speaker, 3515
t-6. Derek Jeter, 3430
t-6. Honus Wagner, 3430
8. Carl Yastrzemski, 3419
9. Paul Molitor, 3319
10. Eddie Collins, 3314
With 47 games left in the regular season after Friday night, 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. No shame in being sixth all-time though.
