Derek Jeter moves into 12th place on all-time hits list

Derek Jeter went 4-for-5 with a homer last night, passing Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie and moving into a tie with Hall of Famer Eddie Murray for 12th place on the all-time hits list with 3,255.

Next up on the list is Willie Mays with 3,283 hits, so Jeter is likely just a couple weeks from passing Mays and moving into 11th place.

And there’s an outside chance he could also move past Eddie Collins, who ranks 10th with 3,315 hits. Jeter has averaged 1.4 hits per game so far this season and the Yankees have 40 games left, so if Jeter plays every game and maintains that exact pace he’d add another 56 hits to give him 3,311.
