Derek Jeter is Supported by Wife Hannah Jeter & Daughters Bella & Story at Baseball Hall of Fame Induction!

It’s a very big day for Derek Jeter!

The 47-year-old retired Yankees player was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday afternoon (September 8) at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, New York.

Derek‘s wife Hannah Jeter looked so proud as she sat in the audience with the couple’s two daughters Bella, 4, and Story, 2.

Derek‘s parents Dorothy and Sanderson Jeter were also in attendance along with his sister Sharlee and her son Jalen.

Michael Jordan and Derek‘s former Yankees teammate Mariano Rivera also showed their support at the ceremony.

Derek was first elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in January 2020, but his induction ceremony was postponed because of the pandemic.

Derek was elected almost unanimously into the Hall of Fame, except for one writer who did not vote for him.

During his acceptance speech at the ceremony, Derek threw a little dig at that one writer.

“Thank you to the baseball writers, all but one of you, who voted for me,” Derek said as the crowd erupted in laughter.

Michael Jordan Sends Message of Support to Protestors: 'We Have Had Enough'

Michael Jordan has broken his silence on the Black Lives Matter protests going on around the country.

The 57-year-old basketball icon shared a message of support to the Black Lives Matter protestors taking to the streets in response to the death of George Floyd.

“I am deeply saddened, truly pained and plain angry,” Michael started. “I see and feel everyone’s pain, outrage and frustration. I stand with those who are calling out the ingrained racism and violence toward people of color in our country. We have had enough.”

Michael then went on to call for “peaceful” protests, while saying we have to “pressure” leaders to make a change.

“I don’t the answers, but our collective voices show strength and the inability to be divided by others. We must listen to each other, show compassion and empathy and never turn our backs on senseless brutality,” Michael continued. “We need to continue peaceful expressions against injustice and demand accountability. Our unified voice needs to put pressure on our leaders to change our laws, or else we need to use our vote to create systemic change. Every one of us needs to be part of the solution, and we must work together to ensure justice for all.”

Michael concluded: “My heart goes out to the family of George Floyd and to the countless others whose lives have been brutally and senselessly taken through acts of racism and injustice. – Michael Jordan.”
