Embracing the Moment

Derek Jeter came into the Yankees' final homestand of the season needing nine hits to tie Lou Gehrig for most hits at Yankee Stadium (1,269). Jeter's records would not have carried over to the new Yankee Stadium next season, so the pressure was on to pass Gehrig in ten games. And just as he has so often, Jeter delivered, notching three hits in the first three games of the homestand, tying Gehrig today with a home run.
