Forgive me if I'm naive, but I never heard about the Derek Jeter Yankees hit record until a couple weeks ago.
Now his passing of Lou Gehrig as the Yankees All-Time Hit Leader is being celebrated everywhere I look.
First at Modell's, where Jeter commemorative hit T's have been flying off the shelves.
Now, it's the folks at Steiner Sports, who are having Jeter sign baseballs ($599), Yankees home jerseys ($999) with his new record and model bats ($999).
To some people, it's just a team hit record. To others, it's Jeter and the Yankees.
