Derek Jeter Stroked An Infield Single in First At Bat of 2013 [Video] [Update: He Left Game with Quad Injury]

It’s a cloudy Thursday afternoon in the Bronx. Amazingly the clouds didn’t part when Derek Jeter stepped into the batter’s box for the first time in 2013. In his first at-bat he hit a chopper up the third base line that resulted in an infield single after his fellow 39-year-old Miguel Tejada couldn’t handle it. Jeter, who broke his ankle last October in the ALCS, came around to score on a sac-fly by Vernon Wells.

The single also gave ‘The Captain’ 3,305 hits for his career. He’s now eight behind tying Eddie Collins for ninth-place all-time.

And here’s Jeter running up the line in GIF form for all you GIF lovers.


Oh my goodness gracious.

UPDATE: Jeter went 1-for-4 in the Yankees’ 8-4 win over the Royals, but was pinch hit for by Brett Gardner in the eighth inning. Early reports indicate a strained quad.


Yankee fans wait on pins and needles for the MRI results.

Because you want to see it first!
