Without question Derek Jeter is the most important New York Yankee in the last thirty years.  He is also one of the few players to retire with over 3,000 Hits for one team. 

To be specific, it was a whopping 3,645.

Obviously an outstanding contact hitter, Jeter retired with an excellent for hi era .310 Batting Average and led the American League in Hits twice while going over the 200 number eight times.  The unquestioned leader of New York also had an underrated power game, smacking 260 Home Runs over his career.

Jeter was excellent in the clutch and he was a huge reason for the Yankees winning five World Series, and he would be named the World Series MVP in the 2000 version, while still putting up the same type of numbers that he did in the regular season.  Specifically, his post seasons features 200 Hits with 20 Home Runs.

As of this writing, Jeter is not in the Baseball Hall of Fame but that is only because he isn’t eligible yet.  He will definitely enter on his first year of eligibility.   We just don’t want to see him host Saturday Night Live again!
