Yesterday was a big day for Derek Jeter. He received word that he will be going into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame this summer in Cooperstown.

Jeter received 396 of the 397 votes, obtaining the highest voting percentage, 99.7, of any position player in election history. Yankees Reliever, Mariano Rivera, was inducted into the HOF this past summer and received 100% of the votes

Jeter was sitting with his family when he got the phone call from Jack O’Connell, the secretary-treasurer of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
