Derek Jeter’s children make a rare appearance at induction into the Hall of Fame
Derek Jeter‘s jersey can say no. 2 on the back, but he will always be no. 1 in the hearts of his family.
The retired New York Yankees star was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, along with his wife on September 8th Hannah Jeter and daughters Bella Raine Jeter, 4, and History of Grauer Jeter, 2, attended the ceremony to celebrate the major milestone.
For the occasion, the children wore matching blue and white dresses and bows around their braids. The public appearance was a rare one for Bella and Story as Derek and Hannah tend to protect their little one’s privacy by keeping them out of the spotlight.
When it was time for their father’s speech, the children joined the crowd and gave him a round of applause. At one point in his remarks, Derek gave his loved ones a sweet greeting.
“My girls, Hannah, Bella and Story. You know, this day marks an exclamation point for my playing career, which was my first dream,” said the 47-year-old athlete. “You know, through all of you, with all of you I live a different life.”
