Contest: Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit

MLB Productions is selling a DVD of the Rays-Yankees game in which Derek Jeter tallied his 3,000th hit.  As well as his 2,999th, his 3,001st, his 3,002nd and his 3,003rd.

If you're a Yankees fan, you'll love this. The whole game broadcast is a giant commercial for Yankees love.

If you're not a Yankees fan, you won't like this very much. The whole game broadcast is a giant commercial for Yankees love.

I'll give my copy of the DVD to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to this question:

By going deep for his 3,000th career hit, Jeter became the second player in baseball history to hit a home run for number 3,000. Who was the first?

--Here are the contest rules.

--UPDATE, 3:21 p.m.: We have a winner! Steven knew that Wade Boggs hit a homer for his 3,000th hit, for the Devil Rays in 1999.
