It’s Official – Derek Jeter Will Be A Hall Of Famer
It's not surprising that Yankees legend Derek Jeter is going to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the most surprising part of the Tuesday evening news is that he wasn't unanimously elected.
NJ.com reports that the iconic shortstop fell just a single vote shy of following his teammate Mariano Rivera to become just the second player ever to receive 100% of the votes in his first year of eligibility.
396 voters named Jeter on their ballot.
1 did not.
Jeter will head to Cooperstown this summer along with former outfielder Larry Walker who played for the Expos, Rockies, and Cardinals over a 16 year career.
The Baseball Hall of Fame's 2020 induction ceremony will take place on Sunday, July 26th.
