Yankees great Derek Jeter fell just one vote short of unanimous election to the Hall of Fame.
The 14-time All-Star shortstop finished his career with 3,465 hits, most among full-time shortstops, and a .310 batting average. His postseason resume is second, perhaps, to no one: In 158 games, Jeter batted .308 and boosted his on base plus slugging percentage to .838 from his respectable .817 mark.
Walker’s five-tool skill set and undeniable Hall of Fame credentials in two crucial categories — OPS (.965, fifth all-time) and Wins Above Replacement (55th) helped him stay on the ballot — and finally get over the top.
