Derek Jeter dropped back one vote Tuesday night because he hadn't managed to become a unanimous Hall of Famer.
Jeter tended to be unanimous, which would have made him the second baseball player behind Mariano Rivera last year to achieve Hall of Fame perfection.
Baseball Writers & # 39; Association of America members who vote are not required to cast their votes, so the world may never find out who is behind Jeter's miss.
Jeter officially received 99.7 percent of the vote. Larry Walker, the 1997 NL MVP, was also elected to the Hall of Fame by appearing on 76.6 percent of the ballots.
