Catching Up

It's back to the photo-blog after a couple of days off in honor of those who lost their lives 9/11/01. On that night - after a rain storm almost forced the game to be called - Derek Jeter, the Yankees' shortstop and team captain, got career base hit number 2,722 off Baltimore pitcher Chris Tillman in the third-inning - to break the tie with Lou Gehrig.

This shot is after all the hoo-ha at first-base when his teammates came out of the dugout to congratulate Jeter on his accomplishment. Derek then acknowledged his family for their lifelong support and the game continued and resulted in a Yankees win. Jeter and his team can now concentrate on the post-season as they try to keep the best overall record in the Major Leagues.
