September 11 holds a bad memory for us all... a memory that will forever be with us. We will never forget the tragedy that affected so many lives.
However, as of Friday, September 11, 2009, New Yorkers have another view, a better memory.
It happened in the bottom of the third inning, NY Yankees against the Baltimore Orioles....
Derek Jeter singled to right off of Orioles's pitcher, Chris Tillman, for hit number 2,272 of his career, beating Lou Gehrig's (NY Yankee) record set 70 years ago!!
Derek Jeter, Captain of the NY Yankees, hit another single later that day, for a total of 2,273 career hits. Only 727 more hits to go to get to the elite 3,000 Hit Club!!
THAT'S MY MAN!!!!!!
