If you took away all of Hank Aaron’s 755 home runs he still would have over 3,000 hits. And NINE people didn’t vote for him for the Hall of a Fame.
How is Babe Ruth not unanimous?
How is Walter Johnson not unanimous?
How is Cy Young not unanimous?
How is Willie Mays not unanimous?
How is Hank Aaron not unanimous?
How is Ted Williams not unanimous?
How is Stan Musial not unanimous?
Doesn’t making Jeter unanimous sound silly?
And now... Larry Walker, the ninth member of the @baseballhall
to have played in Jacksonville!

“Barry bonds & Roger Clemens cheated”
So did hank Aaron. So did a bunch of other people in the HOF and the best part is the guy who ALLOWED steroids because it made him and baseball a ton of money is in the HOF
Bunch of fucking hypocrites. The baseball HOF is an utter joke
If Greg Maddux, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Tony Gwynn, Hank Aaron, Ken Griffey Jr. and Nolan Ryan didn't get to have a unanimous vote, then I'm sorry, but Derek Jeter sure as hell didn't warrant one.
And others didn’t get voted in unanimously. Mariano Rivera was the first to get voted in unanimously.
There is no doubt that Derek Jeter was going to be a first ballot HOF. Does it matter that he wasn’t a unanimous vote?
Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Nolan Ryan not Ken Griffey Jr were unanimous hall of famers. And I think historically we’d could make a case for saying almost all of them were better than Jeter so what’s the issue?
El mismo que tuvieron los que dejaron de votar por Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Stan Musial, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan...
Griffey, Rickey, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays all weren't unanimous, I damn sure don't want to hear a word about Jeter not being unanimous.
Hank Aaron retired from MLB in 1976 and amphetamines weren't banned until 2005
Pleeeeeeeeeeeease!!! Willie Mays had 3,283 hits, 660 homers, 1903 RBIs and “only” 338 stolen bases
Hank Aaron had 3,771 hits, 755 HR, 2297 RBI’s and “only” 240 stolen bases
My moment was as a 7 year old kid saw Tom Seaver in his rookie year in 67 beat the Braves & also got to see Hank Aaron play-been in love with the game ever since Met Lindsey Bob And Ralph in elevator by Diamond Club . Living with only a BW TV was my first Met game in Color
Yes Jeter is an all time great, yes Jeter should have been a unanimous selection. Same with cal, Hank Aaron, Griffey, Seaver, Gwynn, ryan etc...
Derek Jeter also got into the Hall of Fame at a higher vote % than Hank Aaron (97.8), Babe Ruth (95.1), Willie Mays (94.7), Ted Williams (93.3), Mickey Mantle (88.2)—EVERYONE except Mo.
Hit, HR, and Cy Young leaders kept out.
It’s all ridiculous. I don’t care about this either. https://t.co/3JqJWDcsor
Derek Jeter should not be a unanimous Hall of Fame selection. The following were not unanimous:
Ken Griffey Jr.
Cal Ripken Jr.
I shouldn’t have to continue listing players.
As if it really matters if you’re 76% or 100%... Ted Willams, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth... so many that should have been 100%... the bigger shame is that one bozo didn’t vote him in just so he could be famous for a week and get interviewed
Baseball is all about the numbers. McGuire & Sosa were juiced in 1998 & 99 when they broke the Maris record FOUR times. Bonds started juicing & broke the Maris record by *12 HRs AT AGE 36 & then passed Hank Aaron.
10/20 top career HR hitters are from the PED era. Keep them out. https://t.co/435efFxbTo
Derek Jeter? Yes, I would have voted for him, but I tell you now, I am forever ticked off that Hank Aaron and Rickey Henderson were not unanimous choices for the HOF. #BaseballHOF
I remember nick thinking it might be something like AmFam Field AT Hank Aaron Park or something. they said specifically they might incorporate the history/players
Saw my first ever game there on 8/4/75. Saw Hank Aaron at the end of his glorious career and Robin Yount at the beginning of his. Such a great place to watch baseball.
If Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Ted Williams, Cy Young, etc. weren’t unanimous, is this really a surprise? https://t.co/Y5nisnbcml
Hank Aaron had 9 people who left him off the ballot and 23 people had the nerve to leave Willie Mays off the Hall of Fame ballot. 1,415 home runs and a gazillion gold gloves, RBIs between the two men.
Willie Mays, Jr, Hank Aaron, every pitcher not named Rivera some whom were never hit in their careers didn't come close to 100%. 100% means nothing. 100% doesn't mean you're better than those who got less. 75% is the only number that matters.
Was Jeter better than Hank Aaron? Babe Ruth? No? Then why is it a travesty that he wasn't once again treated like he played better than he actually did?
Thanks for posting. Don’t for get about Hank Aaron!
It doesn't matter. He still got in. It literally doesn't matter. All it does it take away from every other Hall of Famer saying they weren't as good as Jeter. You gonna try and say Hank Aaron was worse than Jeter?
