On July 9th, 2011, Yankees legend Derek Jeter made history in grand fashion.
"The Captain" became the first Yankees player to reach 3,000 hits, and he did it by mashing a 3-2 slider off ex-Rays hurler LHP David Price.
With the Yankee Stadium crowd roaring, the game stopped for several minutes as the Rays even came out of the dugout to give a round of applause.
Jeter joined former Yankee Wade Boggs as the second player to ever hit a home run on their 3,000th hit. His teammate at the time, Alex Rodriguez, eventually did the same four years later.
And if the homer wasn't enough for Jeter, the shortstop ended up going 5-for-5 on his historic day.
