It was Jeter’s 3,155th career hit. He’s passed Dave Winfield, Tony Gwynn, Robin Yount, Paul Waner and now Brett since the season began. Next up on the list is Cal Ripken at 3,184. After that is Nap Lajoie at 3,242.
Jeter got his 3,155 hits in 18 seasons and 10,062 at-bats. He’s a lifetime .313 hitter. Brett, who wasn’t blessed with Jeter’s durability and also missed a good chunk of a season due to the 1981 strike, had 3,154 hits in 21 seasons. The first-ballot Hall of Famer hit .305 lifetime.
