Angels Manager Mike Scioscia and right fielder Torii Hunter presented Derek Jeter (pictured above) with a painting before batting practice Friday afternoon at Angel Stadium to commemorate the Yankees shortstop's 3,000th career hit.

There was no on-field ceremony, but after the second inning of Friday night's game, the Angel Stadium public address announcer congratulated Jeter for achieving the milestone, and the crowd cheered.
