Derek Jeter has just passed Lou Gehrig's with his 2,722nd career hit and now holds the Yankee's all-time hits record.
For that I say Jeter, you have made all of us New Yorkers very proud.
Lou Gehrig must be looking down from that baseball diamond in heaven and lifting his baseball cap and saying, “Jeter, you are truly the luckiest man in the world, like I was. You've done good kid!”
