On Wednesday afternoon, Derek Jeter will be immortalized in the Hall of Fame after an incredible career with the New York Yankees.

Jeter, 47, is currently the CEO and part owner of the Miami Marlins - a job he took over in 2017. While he's currently employed by another team, he will always be a Yankee to the fans.

The legendary Yankees infielder will go down in history as one of the best at his respective position. With his induction into the Hall of Fame looming, former Yankees teammate Alex Rodriguez had a message for Jeter.

"Congrats to El Capitan on getting inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today. Congratulations brotha!!!" Rodriguez said on Twitter.

Earlier this week, Jeter said there was only one thing he ever wanted: to be a Yankee.

"I wanted to be remembered as a Yankee," Jeter said when asked what he wanted his legacy to be. "That was it. That was the only team I wanted to play for since as far back as I can remember."

Well, he accomplished that feat and did it pretty well.

The Yankees drafted Jeter nearly 30 years ago and the move paid off. Jeter rewarded the team with 14 All-Star seasons, five Gold Glove awards and five Silver Slugger awards.

More importantly, he led the team to five World Series titles during his two-decade run with the Yankees.
