I got a little curious as to the top 10 Yankees lead off hitters who started the game batting first with atleast 1 plate appearance. Here is what Baseball-Reference has told me:
Rk Player AB H HR RBI BB SO BA OPS
1 Earle Combs 4496 1460 46 486 542 209 .325 .862
2 Horace Clarke 4271 1084 24 261 318 321 .254 .617
3 Willie Randolph 3152 878 20 235 506 231 .279 .736
4 Frankie Crosetti 2856 718 50 262 372 395 .251 .719
5 Derek Jeter 2478 794 73 277 272 407 .320 .863
6 Rickey Henderson 2278 657 77 252 403 277 .288 .851
7 Chuck Knoblauch 2102 571 49 200 259 243 .272 .767

Outside of Earle Combs, no other player on that list has a batting average over .300 other than El Capitan, Derek Jeter. However, Jeter has a higher OPS. Interesting to see Rickey Henderson as compared to Jeter. For your information, Johnny Damon came in at number 11.
