The New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America is adding another historic piece to its collection with a jersey worn by Derek Jeter during the historic game in which the Yankees shortstop recorded his 3,000th career hit.

The special jersey will be on display beginning tomorrow, August 9, through the remainder of the 2011 calendar year.

On July 9, 2011, Jeter became the 28th player all time-and at 37 years, 13 days the fourth youngest-to reach the 3,000-hit plateau with a third-inning solo home run off Tampa Bay's David Price. Jeter would finish the game 5-for-5 with the game-winning RBI single in the eighth inning. He joined Wade Boggs as the only two players to hit a home run as their 3,000th career hit, and became only the second player to record at least five hits in the game in which they recorded their 3,000th hit (also Craig Biggio).

In addition to the historic Jeter jersey, fans can also check out the newly added "Latino Living Legends" exhibit. Constructed in partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame, the exhibit pays homage to the six living Hall of Fame members of Latino descent currently enshrined in Cooperstown - Roberto Alomar, Luis Aparicio, Rod Carew, Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, and Tony Pérez - who have all made an incredible mark on America's favorite pastime, while proudly representing their Latino heritage. The exhibit features player jerseys, trophies, collectible merchandise and autographed memorabilia.

The New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America is located on the Main Level near Gate 6. Guests can access the museum on game days from the time gates open until the end of the eighth inning, and on non-game days as part of the Yankee Stadium tours.
