Hillerich & Bradsby Co. created a special Louisville Slugger baseball bat for New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter Wednesday to commemorate Jeter’s 2,674th hit in Major League Baseball.
The RBI double Sunday night against the Seattle Mariners moved Jeter past Luis Aparicio for the most hits by a shortstop in MLB history. Aparicio played 18 years for the White Sox, Orioles and Red Sox.
During his 15-year career, Jeter has used Louisville Slugger bats exclusively.
The bat was crafted this afternoon and was being immediately shipped to Jeter, Louisville-based Hillerich & Bradsby said in a news release.
