NEW YORK (AP) - The 3,000 Hit Club is an elite group of
baseball's greats. Musial. Ripken. Cobb. Mays. Not one of the 27,
though, joined while wearing a Yankees uniform.
Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig never did it. Neither did Joe DiMaggio
or Mickey Mantle. Same for Bernie Williams and Don Mattingly.
There's an All-Star roll call of Yankees who came up short for
reasons that include illness, injury, wartime service and, frankly,
not being wanted any longer in win-now New York.
No. 2 from Kalamazoo is about to change that.
Sometime in the next week or so, Derek Jeter will perhaps send
another liner to right field to reach the magic number.
