Jeter passes Rickey as Yankees' steals leader
SEATTLE -- Derek Jeter's stolen base in the third inning on Saturday was the 327th of his career, surpassing Rickey Henderson for the most in Yankees history.

Jeter swiped second base at Safeco Field against the battery of right-hander Felix Hernandez and catcher Miguel Olivo. He had tied Henderson on May 22 against the Mets at Yankee Stadium.

"It's hard to believe. Rickey was only here what? A year-and-a-half?" Jeter said then, with a laugh. "But if you play long enough and try to be consistent, I guess good things happen."

Henderson stole a Major League-record 1,406 bases during his 25-year, Hall of Fame career. He appeared in 596 games for the Yankees from 1985-89.

Jeter has four stolen bases this year and logged a career high in 2006 with 34. He and Henderson stand ahead of Willie Randolph (251), who owns the third-most steals in pinstripes.
