Jeter Meter Returns


   The Jeter Meter is back! The LED sign which counted down the Yankee Captain’s quest for 3,000 hits has been re-installed in front of his portrait on River Avenue and 161st Street.

  “The Jeter Meter brought the team and the fans together” said Dr. Cary Goodman, the 161st Street BID’s executive director, “We want to return to that spirit this year.”  Jeter has 3,152 hits and is just three away from passing George Brett and moving into 14th place on the hits list.

  For the past month the Jeter Meter has been the centerpiece of the highly-acclaimed, BASEBALL IN THE BRONX exhibit, at The Bronx Museum
  “The Jeter Meter will keep track of Derek’s hits and give Yankee fans a chance to wish him and the team, Good luck,” Goodman said.

 Last year, the BID joined with area merchants and Cong. Serrano to distribute 3,000 slice of cake to celebrate this Yankee milestone.
