After experiencing Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit in person at Yankee Stadium on July 9, 2011, I believe that everyone should be able to experience a milestone at the stadium. To be honest, it could be any stadium. Milestones are fun to witness no matter where you are. While not all are historic or even article worthy, for example a players 100th home run, their 1,000th RBI, their 100th win; to say you were there for that moment is something you’ll remember for a long time. I have gone through the Yankees roster (as of 1/31/2013), and am highlighting some key milestones that we can expect to see this season, and when I project that the player will hit this mark. I will continue to update this list if anything changes. Please note that all projections listed below are my own. I am basing projections off of the averages of the 3 previous seasons in the particular category of the milestone. Obviously, these projections can change based on any injury the player(s) may incur. Enjoy, and please leave some comments in the section below. Would love to hear your thoughts on these projections.
