The pride of Maple Ridge, British Columbia has become just the second Canadian to be voted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.
Larry Walker, a fearsome hitter and fleet outfielder who played for the Montreal Expos, Colorado Rockies and St. Louis Cardinals over a 17 year career, was elected in his 10th and final year on the ballot.
Walker joins Chatham, Ontario right-handed pitcher Ferguson Jenkins who was inducted in 1991.
Walker was a five-time all-star and a seven-time Gold Glover who led Major League Baseball in batting average for three seasons.
