Earlier this week, former New York Yankee pitcher Mariano Rivera made history by becoming the first unanimous selection into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Next season, former New York Yankee legend Derek Jeter becomes eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame. Jeter's accolades no doubt will earn him an election, however will Jeter also be a unanimous selection? Below are the highest percentages to gain enshrinement into the museum in Cooperstown.

I believe when comparing Jeter to other candidates on the 2020 ballot, he deserves to garner all of the possible voters. His statistics, awards, and team success are more impressive than any other candidate. After this year's vote I know believe will also gain all possible votes as well.

 

Do you believe Derek Jeter will follow his former teammate Mariano Rivera's and head the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a unanmiouis selection? Let us know your thoughts below.
