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. Robinson Cano 200th Home Run HR’s at the start of 2013: 177 Projected Date of 200th HR: August 13, 2013 vs Angels 1,500th Hit Hits at the start of 2013: 1,459 Projected Date of 1,500th hit: May 20, 2013 @ Orioles Derek Jeter Place on the All-Time Hits List Hits at the start of 2013: 3,304 Projected Date of 3,316th Hit (10th All-Time): April 14, 2013 vs. Orioles Projected Date of 3,320th Hit (9th All-Time): April 19, 2013 @ Blue Jays Projected Date of 3,421st Hit (7th All-Time): July 20, 2013 @ Red Sox Projected Date of 3,436th Hit (6th All-Time): August 3, 2013 @ Padres Mark Teixeira 1,000 Runs Runs at the start of 2013: 938 Projected Date of 1,000th run: September 4, 2013 vs White Sox CC Sabathia 200 wins Wins at the start of 2013: 191 Projected Date of 200th win: June 6-9, 2013 @ Mariners (If he pitches in the series.
