Derek Jeter ties Willie Mays
Derek Jeter has the same number of hits as Willie Mays.
Jeter said I care about winning, but this is an honor yada yada yada.
What he should have said: Willie Mays overcame cultural obstacles to make the majors, and he missed two seasons to war. If he had played those seasons, we wouldn't be having this discussion. It wouldn't be close, and Hank Aaron would have been second place when he passed Babe Ruth.
