How cool would it be if Jeter’s 3,000th hit came in the form of a grand slam homerun into the Yankees bullpen at Yankee Stadium? Of course, it’s very unlikely. But, it would be cool.
How about this? Say Jeter’s on 2,999 and he comes to plate against a pitcher who really falls towards first base in his follow-through. And, the third baseman is playing way back. Is it acceptable to bunt for your 3,000th hit? If it is, think Jeter would do it?
