The ErnBlog Number of the Day is 115

Yankees superstar shortstop Derek Jeter (who will turn 40 in June) announced yesterday that 2014 (his 20th Major League season) will be his last.  If Jeter smacks 115 hits this season, he will pass Pittsburgh Pirates Hall-of-Famer Honus Wagner (mostly famous for his classic baseball cards from the early 1900s), and become the shortstop with the most hits in MLB history.  Jeter is currently 10th on MLB’s All-Time Hits List.  Pete Rose is 1st, and Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski (who wore number 8) is appropriately 8th on the legendary Hits List.
