• Happy Birthday Derek Jeter

    Posted by on June 26th, 2007 · Comments (2)

    D.J. turns 33 today.

    Think he had a party yesterday – with the off-day? Some great Jeter stuff from Ed Price:

    Jeter has hit in every spot in the batting order — except fifth. He batted cleanup once (July 10, 1999, against the Mets) and sixth once (June 16, 1996, against Cleveland after coming in for Mariano Duncan).

    Jeter was the second-most searched term in June on the Web site of Steiner Sports, a collectibles company. No. 1? “The Sopranos.”

    Jeter has not gone hitless in four straight games since June 2003.

    Including the $700,000 bonus he received after being drafted, Jeter has made about $131.6 million in salary from the Yankees. He will make another $74.6 million before his 10-year contract is up in 2010.

    Since the start of the 1996 season, Jeter has 659 multiple-hit games, more than any other player in the majors.

    Since Jeter became a regular in 1996, the Yankees have sold 38,310,634 tickets at Yankees Stadium — more than the population of Canada.
