Retiring New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter recorded his 350th stolen base in the first inning of his team's 4-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on June 11. Jeter stole another base in the seventh inning to boost his career total to 351.

Retiring New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter recorded his 350th stolen base of his career in a 4-2 win over the Seattle Mariners. 

Jeter, also known as "The Captain," added another stolen base in the seventh inning for good measure, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch: 

"Derek Jeter reached another notable career milestone on Wednesday, stealing his 350th base in the first inning of the Yankees' game against the Mariners at Safeco Field. 

Running on a 3-2 count to Jacoby Ellsbury, Jeter slid safely into second base with no throw from center Mike Zunino as Ellsbury struck out. The stolen base was Jeter's second of the season. 

"'I got the green light, and green light, that means you go,' Jeter said after the Yankees' 4-2 victory. 'Just because I haven't done something doesn't mean I can't do it. I got the green light, I was in a good situation, so I took advantage of it.'

"Jeter is just the third player in Major League history with 3,000 or more hits, 350 or more stolen bases and 250 or more home runs, joining Rickey Henderson and Craig Biggio in that select group.

"Jeter, who added another stolen base in the seventh inning, is the Yankees' all-time stolen-base leader, 25 ahead of Henderson, whose 326 with the club happened from 1985-89." 

Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka threw 11 strikeouts to help preserve New York's 33rd win of the season. He was just two outs shy of his second shutout of the season before former Yankee Robinson Cano drilled a two-run home run in the ninth inning, per The New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand. 

With the win, Tanaka continues to lord it over other American League pitchers with a 10-1 record and a 2.01 ERA. First baseman Mark Teixiera belted a three-run homer in the fourth inning to push the Yankees' lead to 4-0, Feinsand notes. 

In another development, Jeter placed 35th on Forbes Magazine's list of highest-paid athletes for 2014. ESPN's Wallace Matthews was able to write an article about Jeter and four of his other Yankees teammates who made the prestigious list: 

"Derek Jeter is the highest-paid Yankee on Forbes' annual  list of the highest-paid athletes, coming in 34 spots behind the top earner, boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who raked in $105 million for two fights. 

"Jeter's earnings are pegged at $24.3 million, $9 million of which came from endorsements. The next Yankee on the list is CC Sabathia, in 37th place, with $26.2 million. Alex Rodriguez, everybody's poster boy for extravagant contracts, doesn't show up until No. 48, with stated earnings of $22.9 million. 

"However, because of his suspension, A-Rod will take home a mere $5.9 million this year -- a $3 million bonus from the Yankees, as well as $2.9 million in salary not covered by the 162-game ban. 

 

"Mark Teixiera ($22.7 million) checks in two spots below A-Rod, and Alfonso Soriano rounds out the Yankee presence at No. 93 ($18.1 million). Also on the list are ex-Yankees Robinson Cano (No. 60, at $21.5 million) and Vernon Wells (No. 65), who will be paid $21.1 million, probably without a single game this season."
