Derek Jeter joined Wade Boggs as the only player to homer for No. 3,000. Meanwhile, he’s 4-for-4 and vying for the cycle.
The lucky fan who caught — picked up — the home run ball, Christian Lopez, showed a lot of class by giving the ball to the Yankees without a fight. The Yankees gave him several prizes in return, including tickets for the rest of the season through the World Series.
Obviously I will have more on this later. For the time being, congrats, Jeet!
