Jeter Passes Honus Wagner On All-Time Hits List!

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v. New York Yankees

Unfortunately, *coincidence* (Derek) Jeter’s ceremonial hit occured at the same time as former Yankee Paul O’Neill plaque presentation, otherwise it would be obviously more tout. Jeter didn’t even hit it out of the infield (and made it on!) to notch up to 6th place on the All-Time Hits List (chart below) passing legendary (most valuable baseball card ever legendary) Pittsburgh Pirates’ HOF Honus Wagner! The Yankees ended up losing to the Cleveland Indians 3-0, but to be up at the top (of the Hits list) with names Tris Speaker and Stan Musial is an amazing special moment!
