to New York Yankee Shortstop Derek Jeter for 3,000 hits. Jeter may have gone to Michigan, but he's still an example of doing it right. Stayed with the same team (albeit with the Yankees, who can pay more than anyone else anyway), worked hard, played great, treated teammates and fans right. This is why, on my magical trip to Yankee Stadium back in 2007, I chose to get a Derek Jeter jersey (Yankee jerseys are so classic that I had to have one).
Classy reaction by the fans in Tampa Bay and the members of Tampa Bay Rays celebrating and congratulating Jeter on his accomplishment.
Jeter is a story of how doing it right can be rewarding and recognized by all.
