Former New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter is headed to the hall of fame.

The superstar baseball player was voted into the hall of fame Tuesday, but it didn’t come without some controversy. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Jeter was one vote short of being a unanimous selection. That’s right! Somebody decided the greatest shortstop to play the game wasn’t good enough for the hall of fame.

I would love to hear from the guy who didn’t vote for Jeter to get into the hall of fame. The former Yankees star has five World Series titles.

All the guy did during his time in the MLB was win. He became the face of arguably the most iconic franchise in the sport.

Again, I’d love to get an explanation from the one lone holdout. I’m not even a huge baseball guy, and I couldn’t care less about the Yankees.

At the same time, I do care about excellence, and it doesn’t get much more excellent than Jeter. Despite one person not voting for him, Jeter did more than enough to earn his spot.

Props and ultimate respect to him.
