Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player: Derek Jeter
Every Tuesday Sports Grind Entertainment presents you with the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player of the Week. This week the recipient of this prestigious honor goes to New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter for getting hit number 3,000 and becoming only the 28th player in Major League Baseball to do so. Tampa Bay Rays lefthander David Price fed Jeter a wide range of pitches and starting off with a four seam fastball but it was a curveball that he hit over the fence. Jeter became the second player in Major League history to log his 3,000th hit as a homer, joining Wade Boggs, who did it on Aug. 7, 1999, while playing for Tampa Bay. Of the 27 other members of the 3,000 hits club, four have suited up for the Yankees including Boggs, Rickey Henderson, Paul Waner and Dave Winfield but though no player had recorded that hit at Yankee Stadium or in a Yankee uniform.
Congratulations Derek Jeter you are this weeks Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player.
