Induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame isn't the only honor heading Derek Jeter's way in the near future.
According to amNew York, Vanessa Gibson and Diana Ayala, two Bronx councilwomen, are introducing legislature to rename a section of E. 161 Street as "Jeter Street," with voting expected to pass the proposal without issue.
Jeter isn't the first Yankee to be honored with a street renaming. Mariano Rivera, who was unanimously voted into the Hall of Fame last year, saw part of River Ave renamed "Rivera Ave."
Once E. 161 Street is renamed, Yankee Stadium will now be located at the intersection of Jeter Street and Rivera Ave.
The question of whether or not Jeter will join Rivera as the only two players to be unanimously voted into the Hall of Fame will be answered on Jan. 21, when the 2020 class is announced.
Jeter, of course, played all 19 of his professional seasons with the Yankees. The 14-time All-Star and Yankee captain helped lead the team to five World Series titles, with the first coming in 1996 and the final coming in 2009. He wrapped up his illustrious career with 3,465 hits, a .310 batting average, 260 home runs, and 1,311 RBI.
