Jeter Hits a Single in His First At-Bat for Yankees This Season

Follow us on:

July 11 (Bloomberg) -- New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter had an infield single in his first at-bat with the Major League Baseball team this season after recovering from a broken ankle.

Jeter was in the starting lineup, batting second as the designated hitter, for today’s 1 p.m. game against the Kansas City Royals at Yankee Stadium.

The 39-year-old, normally a shortstop, broke his ankle in the playoffs last October against the Detroit Tigers. He aggravated it in spring training, delaying his return.

He hit the first pitch from Ervin Santana today weakly down the third-base line. He was awarded a hit because there was no play at first.
