One thing you have to hand it to minor league teams is they promote really well, and they rarely miss an opportunity. That happened Monday morning as news was barely getting out that Kalamazoo's Derek Jeter was leaving the Miami Marlins organization.
Eventually Kalamazoo's Derek Jeter, the long time New York Yankees captain, will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. But due to the pandemic and now to be able to make it safe for both fans and for the returning Hall of Famers, the ceremony has been pushed back to Wednesday afternoon, September 8th. in Cooperstown, New York, in September.
The only question was whether it was going to be unanimous. And after teammate Mariano Rivera was voted into Baseball's Hall of Fame unanimously last year, it seemed possible it could have two years in a row, but one writer did not vote for Jeter.
