STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON DEREK JETER'S 3,000TH CAREER HIT
"Long before joining the 3,000 hit club, Derek Jeter became another one of New York's icons because he represents what is best in the spirit of our city: an unbreakable belief that with hard work and determination, anything can be accomplished. Perhaps above all else, Derek is someone who loves this city and who has a long history of giving back to the place and the people that helped make him the superstar he is. New York has a greater baseball tradition than any other city, but we've never had a player get all 3,000 hits in a New York uniform until today. Congratulations Derek - you've made all of New York City proud."
