The game of baseball holds so many highlights for fans and players but when the last out is recorded in an athletes career those moments can only be trumped by an induction to National Baseball Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown. For Derek Jeter and the fans, it will have been worth the wait.

The Induction Ceremony this year will take place on Wednesday September 8th on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center and fans can be there in person to honor the Class of 2020, Derek Jeter, Ted Simmons, Larry Walker and Marvin Miller.
