He passed Luis Aparicio with a double today.
Yankees captain Derek Jeter has passed Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio for most hits by a shortstop.
Jeter hit an RBI double in the third inning of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Mariners. His 2,674th hit as a shortstop came two innings after he had singled against Seattle rookie starter Doug Fister leading off the game.
He had seven hits in his first 14 at-bats of the four-game series with the Mariners.
Jeter also has 13 hits as a designated hitter in his career.
His 2,687 hits as of the third inning Sunday were second in Yankees history, 34 behind Lou Gehrig.
Barring some scandal, Jeter will be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame one day.
