Video: Derek Jeter – Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Speech!

Dear Commons Community,

Derek Jeter was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday and gave an acceptance speech (see video above) with lots of references to family, friends, and fellow baseball players.

Having grown up six blocks from Yankee Stadium in the 1950s and 1960s, I have been a life-long fan of the Bronx Bombers.  I have seen many of the great Yankee players (Mantle, Maris, Berra, Howard, Ford).  Jeter was as good any of them especially “in the clutch.” 

Congratulations to “The Captain!”
