Jeter's 3,000th hit
MLB.com pays tribute
The video tribute takes fans through all of Jeter's memorable moments, from his first hit to his 1,000th, to the 2000 Subway Series against the Mets in which he hit .409 with two home runs en route to being named World Series MVP. Jeter's remarks following perhaps the highest honor of his career when, in 2003, he was named the 11th captain of the Yankees, also are heard.And, of course, what Jeter film compilation would be complete without the shortstop's legendary 2001 flip toward home plate against the A's in the American League Division Series? The 2006 season brought Jeter's 2,000th hit, and three years later, on Sept. 11, 2009, Jeter became the Yankees' all-time hits leader, passing Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig. On Saturday, the long-awaited day finally came when Jeter hit a third-inning pitch from Tampa Bay's David Price into the Yankee Stadium seats. It was a historic day, no doubt. But as shown in "Der3k Jeter: A Yankee First" it was just the latest of numerous accomplishments for a player who has transformed into a 12-time All-Star, a fan favorite and the current, everyday face of a storied Yankees organization for which he grew up rooting. "Der3k Jeter: A Yankee First" was executively produced by Dinn Mann and Michael Furno and was produced by Dan Huyssen and Mike Siano. It was directed and edited by Craig Cukrowski and written by Alden Gonzalez, Huyssen and Cukrowski. John Turturro is the narrator.
Fans can also catch "DEREK JETER 3K" -- an hourlong documentary produced by HBO and Major League Productions that will air in a few weeks.
