Derek Jeter will highlight the Hall of Fame Class of 2020, but he has obvious deep ties to members of this years class as well.

In this episode of “30 With Murti,” WFAN's Sweeny Murti talks to the former Yankees captain about his long career playing with Mariano Rivera, the ups and downs of the early part of their journey and their rise to the championship years.

Jeter, now the CEO of the Miami Marlins, also talks about other members of this year’s Hall of Fame class.

On Mike Mussina: "Moose was a great teammate because Moose went out, did his job, did his job very well. ... You didn’t have to sit and wonder if he was going to be prepared to do his job.”

On Roy Halladay: "Roy Halladay was by far the toughest pitcher for me to face. I just couldn’t figure him out.”

On Edgar Martinez: “I would get on Mo. ... He just owned Mo.”

And on his own Hall of Fame chances next year: “I try not to think a lot about it. I mean, I have my hands full down here in Miami right now.”
