Captain, My Captain

Congratulations to Yankee captain Derek Jeter on his 3,000th hit, which happened on Saturday. From USA Today:
He became the 28th player in Major League Baseball history to reach or surpass 3,000 career base hits. Jeter did it in style too, becoming only the second player after Wade Boggs to get his 3,000th hit on a home run. It was part of a 5-for-5 day he capped by driving in the go-ahead run in the Yankees' 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. 
That makes Jeter the first Yankee to achieve 3,000 hits in pinstripes. With 3,003 hits he's baseball's active hits leader and only four behind Al Kaline (3,007) of the Detroit Tigers for 26th place on the all-time hits list that includes baseball legends ranging from Hank Aaron and Willie Mays to Stan Musial and Ty Cobb.

All that AND he still looks great while going shirtless and acting silly with his gal, Minka Kellly:
