Derek Jeter is officially headed to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The only question on Tuesday night was whether or not Jeter would enter the Hall unanimously, as former teammate Mariano Rivera did just last year. Although he came up one vote shy, Jeter is still Cooperstown bound.
After the news of Jeters' selection broke, former teammates, as well as other players from around baseball, weighed in on Mr. November's newest honor.
Here is a sampling of what people around baseball had to say on social media regarding the former Yankee captain being named a Hall of Famer...

Congrats to two of the best who ever lived. I was lucky to play with Jeter for 6 seasons and see his talent, leadership, and grace first hand. If any kid wants to know how to play the game right and conduct yourself with class, just look at #2. https://t.co/XXEcet3Odh- Mark Teixeira (@teixeiramark25) January 22, 2020
