Derek Jeter put his name atop another category in the formidable offensive history of the New York Yankees when he passed Rickey Henderson on the all-time stolen base list with a swipe of second tonight against the Mariners at Safeco Field.

The steal, Jeter’s fourth of the season, came with none out and Curtis Granderson batting in the third inning and gave him 327 for his career, one more than Henderson, who played in 1,700 fewer games as a Yankee. Henderson is baseball's all-time stolen base king with 1,406.

Jeter, of course, is the Yankees all-time leader in hits with 2,979, a total he added to with the third inning single and a fifth-inning double, and at-bats. He is second in games played (2342) behind Mickey Mantle, second in doubles (473) behind Lou Gehrig, and ninth in RBI with 1,150.
