After tying Honus Wagner for sixth on MLB’s all-time hits list last night, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter moved into sole possession this afternoon with an infield single against Indians right-hander Corey Kluber in the bottom of the sixth inning. He now has 3,431 hits in his career.

Jeter tapped a slow roller to the left side of the infield which third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall attempted to pick up on the bare-hand, but he couldn’t make the play. Check out the video below:

His last two hits haven’t been the prettiest, but they still count as much as the rest of them. Tris Speaker (3,515) is in fifth place on the all-time hits list, so this is almost certainly as high as Jeter will be able to climb in his final season. Of course, the top-four consist of Pete Rose (4,256), Ty Cobb (4,191), Hank Aaron (3,771), and Stan Musial (3,630). Quite a group.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
