NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter singled in the first inning of Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Rangers, raising his career total to 3,243.
Due to discrepancies in historical stats, some numbers may differ, according to the source. Elias is the official statistician of Major League Baseball and recognizes Nap Lajoie as having 3,252 hits while other historical sources believe Lajoie had 3,242 hits, which would give Jeter sole possession of 12th place on the all-time career hits list. Lajoie played from 1896-1916 and spent time with Philadelphia and Cleveland.
Eddie Murray ranks 11th on the all-time list, after Lajoie, with 3,255 hits.
