The Winning Hit

On Saturday, Derek Jeter made history as the first Yankee and the 28th baseball player to reach 3,000 hits. Not only that. His 3,000th hit was a solo home run.

Being Yankee fans, hubby and I were THRILLED that we were able to witness that great historic moment even if it was only through live t.v. coverage. As we all know, the guy who caught the ball graciously returned it to Derek Jeter. That famous ball may be worth thousands of dollars in the market, but to baseball giants like Jeter, it is priceless.

Hubby is a staunch baseball and Yankee fan. He's got quite a collection of baseball memorabilia like autographed balls, gloves and a lot of baseball collectibles. The other day, I've been looking into personalized baseball bats. That could be another great gift for this big baseball fan.

The myth is that you put a Yankee uniform on a player
and he becomes great.

I watched this on television a couple of times. It was a great moment. Great players rise to the occasion.
