Derek Jeter to be Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this Summer

New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter has been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, cementing his status as one of the greatest to ever play the game.

Jeter finished his career with a .310 batting average, 3,465 hits and 260 home runs over 20 seasons with the Yankees. He was a five-time World Series champion, 14-time All-Star, 2000 World Series MVP, 1996 Rookie of the Year, and five-time Gold Glove winner. His jersey number 2 was retired by the Yankees in 2017.

Hall of Fame Weekend 2020 will take place July 24-27, with the Induction Ceremony scheduled for Sunday, July 26.  Jeter’s induction has been anticipated for years, so this is going to be an exceptionally exciting year for Cooperstown!
