MANHATTAN, N.Y. — At a Wednesday press conference in Manhattan, Derek Jeter and Larry Walker donned their new Hall of Fame caps and jerseys in front of reporters.
Both took the opportunity to thank the baseball writers for voting them into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
“This is an absolute honor. It’s an honor for me to go into the Hall of Fame alongside Larry [Walker], alongside Ted Simmons and congratulations to the late Marvin Miller and his family,” Jeter said regarding his election.
Jeter noted how the designation was far from his thoughts during the daily grind of his playing days.
