NEW YORK, N. Antoine Griezmann Atletico Madrid Jersey .Y. - Derek Jeter has had as close to perfect a career as a major leaguer can have. Still, five years from now, dont expect the New York Yankees captain to be a unanimous selection to baseballs Hall of Fame.Thats not a knock. Hed be in pretty impressive company.Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Cal Ripken Jr. all dominated the game, and all came up short. Tom Seaver, the top vote-getter by percentage, was left off five ballots.If theres anyone worthy of 100 per cent approval from the voters in the Baseball Writers Association of America, Jeter could be it.Hes so revered, Hall spokesman Brad Horn said. Hes reached iconic status probably at a more national standard of any player of his lifetime.The 40-year-old shortstops model career for the majors most storied franchise will come to an end Sunday after two decades, save a baseball miracle. Five World Series championships, sixth on the career hits list, 14 All-Star selections. Hes the face of baseball, idolized by a generation of young stars from Troy Tulowitzki to Yoenis Cespedes to Mike Trout. And he played through the Steroids Era without the slightest tarnish.What then could possibly prevent No. 2 from receiving affirmation from all 500-plus voters on the class of 2020 ballot?Plenty, it turns out.Election to the Hall of Fame requires 75 per cent of the vote from writers with 10 consecutive years in the BBWAA at any point, a rigorous standard that produced no player electees in 2013. Writers can vote for up to 10 players a€” there were 36 on the ballot this year with Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas gaining entry.Seaver received 98.84 per cent of the vote in 1992. Ripken, credited with helping revive baseball after the 1994-95 strike by breaking the consecutive games record set by Lou Gehrig, failed to impress eight voters and was third by percentage at 98.53. Aaron? Nine people didnt vote for the home run king, and hes sixth on the list at 97.83.I do not consider a unanimous vote important for the simple reason that it is nearly impossible for between 500 and 600 people to agree completely on any one thing, BBWAA Secretary-Treasurer Jack OConnell said. It is hard enough to get the 75 per cent required for election.Election to the Hall is not based solely on statistics. Consideration of integrity, character and sportsmanship are integral.Thats where it gets complicated.Stars such as home run king Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Mark McGwire have fallen way short of the minimum because many writers refuse to vote for anyone who has admitted using performance-enhancing drugs or been accused. Two voters who revealed their secret ballots this year, Ken Gurnick and Larry Rocca, left Maddux off because the 355-game winner played during the Steroids Era, even though no one suggested he used PEDs.Gurnick submitted just one name, Jack Morris, who fell short of the 75 per cent threshold in his final year on the ballot. Others have returned blank ballot in protest of PED users.Writers have left names off their ballot specifically because no one has been a unanimous selection.Others have withheld votes from superstars in order to throw support to a candidate they may think needs more help. Some players were left off ballots because they had contentious relationships with members of the media. One gave his vote to Deadspin a€” he was banned from voting again.Voting for the Hall of Fame is a subjective exercise, Horn said. The Baseball Hall of Fame has entrusted the BBWAA since the very first election in 36 to provide strong council, good judgment and make very representative selections of what the Hall of Fame stands.Ruths feats on the field and his shenanigans off it made him one of the most famous people in America. Yet, he was omitted from 11 ballots and got just 95.13 per cent of the vote in 1936. Perhaps his carousing had an influence on the writers.Jeter doesnt have that problem, though, and that is in part what makes him the perfect candidate for perfection.If theres going to be a first-time unanimous choice for the Hall of Fame, it should be him, Rays manager Joe Maddon said.

He got the kick after referee Allen Chapman ruled Chris Tierney fouled John Stertzer in the penalty area.ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- Mark Webber managed to outshine his Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel, beating the four-time world champions time right at the end of qualifying to take pole position for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Saturday. The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. "Good day," Webber said, who clocked 1 minute, 39.957 seconds. Vettel timed 1:40.075. "It was a good lap on a track that, in the past, hasnt been super invigorating for me in terms of layout but we certainly enjoyed qualifying today. I knew I had to work on certain sections of the track which Sebastian had already been doing a good job there, so I needed to match him and keep the areas where I was still doing well." Vettel, who already has his fourth straight F1 title, took pole in four of the past five races. "I did what I could today but it wasnt enough. Thats why I apologized to the team. I messed up a bit on turn 1, its a tricky corner," Vettel said. "I think its a great result for the team, first of all." Mercedes starts on the second row, with Nico Rosberg ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who spun his car in the closing seconds. "Nico and Lewis looked very strong, especially in Q2," Vettel said. "We found some extra speed in Q3, so congratulations to Mark. He deserved to be on pole, no mistakes." It proved a disappointing afternoon for Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso, who failed to make Q3 for the first time this season and starts from 11th on the grid. Mercedes is battling with Ferrari for second place in the constructors championship behind Red Bull, which has already won the title. Mercedes leads Ferrari by 313-309, with Lotus back in fourth with 285. "Third place, best of the rest, which is our target for this weekend," Rosberg said. "The constructors is what counts for us. So thats a very good result for us." But Mercedes will have to assess what happened to Hamiltons car. Guilherme Siqueira Atletico Madrid Jersey. "Something gave way on the right-hand side," Hamilton said. "I was going through the chicane and it snapped out. I tried to pull away and it wouldnt move." Hamilton has won one race this season -- clinching victory at the Hungarian GP from pole position in July -- but has not managed a podium finish in his past five outings. "This is a very difficult circuit to overtake on so being at the front means everything," Hamilton said. "Hopefully we can get a good start and maybe still challenge for podium positions." Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen qualified in fifth spot but was demoted to the back of the grid after his car failed a post-qualifying floor deflection test. Lotus successfully argued that floor damage caused by track kerbing led to a similar failure by Lotus driver Romain Grosjean at the Hungarian GP, but this time their explanation was not accepted. Raikkonens exclusion elevates Saubers Nico Hulkenberg to fifth place and moves Ferraris Felipe Massa up to seventh and teammate Alonso back into the top 10. It has been a frustrating weekend for 2007 champion Raikkonen, who on Friday made a rare public outburst over unpaid wages and threatened not to race in the final two races of the season. Meanwhile, Alonsos qualifying form has been so bad that he has not even made the second row since qualifying third for the Bahrain GP in April. Massa, meanwhile, has made the top three only once, qualifying in second spot for the Malaysian GP a month earlier. Because qualifying and the race itself are held at twilight, when the track is considerably cooler at sunset, only a limited amount of useful data could be gained from early afternoon practice runs, when the daily temperature peaked. But Ferrari continued to struggle on the twisty circuit, just as it did on Friday, with Fernando Alonso down in 11th and Felipe Massa placing 14th in the final practice run. The design of the track, with its long, sharp turns and hairpin bends, exposes the lack of traction on the Ferraris, an ongoing problem this season and last. Neither Ferrari driver finished higher than eighth over the three practice runs.
