    From the Times today -

    Derek Jeter singled in the first game of Wednesday’s doubleheader to give him hits in 92 of his past 100 games. According to the Society for American Baseball Research, no player in the 1900s had a hit in as many as 92 of 100 games.

    The last player to do it was Wee Willie Keeler, who hit in 93 of 100 games 1898 and 1899.

    Watch out Pete Rose.

      I can’t believe nobody has commented on this yet. Jeter is amazing, I think this streak is incredible because basically every game Jeter is giving you at least one chance to score when he gets on base. Also, it shows you how good of a hitter Jeter is and how he has been able to avoid any slumps and how good Jeter’s hitting mechanics and approach at the plate must be.

      Do we know if Jeter walked in any of those 8 games he didn’t get a hit in?

      ===========
      Yes, 4/7, 9/12, 8/19, 8/17.

      4/24 he had a HBP.

      So he’s reached base 98 out of the last 100 games, assuming he didn’t reach on a fielder’s choice or error in the other two game. Impressive. I wish Jeter could bat 1st 2nd and 3rd. HAHA.

      So Jeter has reached base in 97 of the last 100 games, assuming he didn’t reach on an error or fielder’s choice in the other 3 games. Impressive. I wish Jeter could bat 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. HAHA.
