The folks who runs the electronics at Yankee Stadium were at no loss of stuff to put on the scoreboard during the one-hour plus Tuesday’s game between the A’s and the Yankees was delayed by rain.
They ran video clips and interviews about past Yankee glories, of which there are many to choose. One they kept coming back to was Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit.
It was back on July 9, 2011 in Yankee Stadium with the Yankees matched up against the Tampa Bay Rays’ David Price. The big left-hander tried to throw a 3-2 curve to Jeter in the third inning, but the veteran shortstop wasn’t fooled and deposited into the left field cheap seats.
That moment has a special meaning for A’s catcher John Jaso. If you watch the video, you can see it was Jaso who was Price’s catcher that day.
