Jeter gets 396 out of 397 votes or something like that.  Lol.  Gonna love it when it finally comes out who that one guy was.

That one guy was right. Jeter is probably a hall of famer but 1st ballot 100 percent? Fuck that.

If he had not been a Yankee, it never would have been close to 100%.

Why?  If he's a hall of famer then he's a hall of famer.  This notion that you need to manually manipulate the % of votes cause player X needs to be voted in within a certain range is preposterous and antiquated.  Feels like an OK Boomer is warranted.

It's not that, it's just that statistically getting 100 percent is close to impossible with the number of voters, so obviously it was lobbied for pretty hard by the MLB and the Yankees organisation.
