Jeter was elected by the BBWAA with 99.7 percent of the vote, one shy of a unanimous selection. Yet, the Yankee Captain enters the Hall with the second-highest percentage ever and the best of any position player in the history of the game.
Derek Jeter fell one vote short of joining his Yankee teammate Mariano Rivera as unanimous selections into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
In 20-seasons in the Bronx, Jeter helped the pinstripes win five World Series titles. Jeter earned 1996 American League Rookie of the Year, 2000 All-Star Game and World Series MVP, collected 3,465 hits, five silver slugger and gold glove awards and was a 14-time AL All-Star.
