To date, in the history of Major League Baseball, only one player has been inducted with 100% of the votes; It is the closer of the New York Yankees, the Panamanian Mariano Rivera. Retired from baseball in 2013, he became immortal in the 2019 class.

His teammate, Captain of those Yankees, Derek Jeter was one vote away from emulating the closer. At 99.7%, Jeter is the second highest-voted player to be a member of the Cooperstown sanctuary. Retired in 2014, he rose to Olympus as the 2020 class leader.

Before them, the most voted of all time had been the outfielder of the Seattle Mariners and the Cincinnati Reds, Ken Griffey Jr., who hung up the spikes in 2010 and was immortalized in 2016.
