Jeter, Walker Headline Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

(Cooperstown, NY)  --  "Mr. November" is officially immortalized in Cooperstown.  Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons and former Players Association boss Marvin Miller were all inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday.  Jeter closed his speech with "It's been a hell of a ride" to a crowd that was full of Yankees fans.  Jeter spent his entire 20-year career with the Yankees, where he won five championships, made 14 All-Star games and won the AL Rookie of the Year in 1996.  Walker, who hit .313 with 383 career homers and won the 1997 NL MVP in his 17-year career, became the second Canadian-born Hall of Famer and the first player to be enshrined as a member of the Colorado Rockies.  Simmons was selected by an era committee during the 2019 winter meetings and made eight All-Star teams as a catcher with the Cardinals and Brewers in the 70s and 80s.  Miller, who passed away in 2012, had his speech given by his MLBPA successor Donald Fehr.
