Derek Jeter‘s little girls don’t quite grasp what a big deal their dad is to baseball and vice versa.

Appearing on 今天 Friday with wife 汉娜, the former New York Yankee, 48, explained that he had to offer abribeto older daughters — Story Grey, 3½, and Bella Raine, 5 — to get them to sit through their first baseball game — which included a ceremony celebrating his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

I told them if they stay in their seats, I’d get them some ice cream afterward,” Jeter said of the significant day.

That deal was a big one to daughter Bella, who interrupted her 14-time All-Star dad during his speech to ask him to tell the stadium about the arrangement.

I’m actually giving a speech, and my oldest is tapping me on the shoulder and she said, ‘Tell everyone that I’m getting ice cream after the game,’ ” 他回忆说.

Ahead of the ceremony in September, Jeter shared a video in the car with Hannah as they chatted with his two older daughters, with youngest River Rose — who celebrated her first birthday earlier this month — in tow.

“伙计们, are you guys excited to go to Yankee Stadium?” Hannah asked the girls, to which Bella enthusiastically replied, “是的!”

“是的, what do you want to see at Yankee Stadium?” Jeter asked.

I want to eat!” Bella said. When Jeter asked what else, Story offered, “Eat ice cream.

The girls discussed being excited to eat ice cream and hot dogs, blissfully unaware their dad was the night’s honoree.
