We see a no brainer here.

Derek Jeter is a Hall of Famer in every sense of the words.  He is a multi time World Series Champion, a member of the 3,000 Hit club, a lifetime .310 hitter and a multi time All Star, Silver Slugger and Gold Glove recipient.  Jeter has the traditional and sabremetric statistics and in terms of “fame”, he is one of the most popular players of all-time and is part of the pantheon of legendary leaders of the New York Yankees, which alone puts him into Cooperstown.

This is one of those rare cases where anyone who doesn’t vote for Derek Jeter for the Hall of Fame should have their ballot revoked.
