Larry Walker said : “I’m kind of trembling inside right now. Nothing seems real about it. I’m still trying to absorb it all. It hasn’t happened yet. I don’t know when it’s going to happen. Maybe it’s going to be in July. Maybe it’s going to be later today. I just don’t know, but it’s crazy to think what I just did.ȁ#x201d; Now 53, Walker earned baseball’s highest honor in January on his 10th and final appearance on the writers’ ballot. He received 304 votes, six above the 75% needed, and will be inducted July 26 along with former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, catcher Ted Simmons and former players’ association head Marvin Miller. A native of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, just outside Vancouver, Walker joins pitcher Ferguson Jenkins as the only Canadian-born players elected to the Hall of Fame, and it’s a source of pride. ȁ#x201c;To have this honor and to be from north of the border, to be the first position player, the second Canadian, I can’t find the words,” “I’m stuttering around here.ȁ#x201d; That’s easy to understand considering Walker’s past. His boyhood dreams were filled with skates and hockey sticks, not bats and gloves. His older brother, Carey, was a goaltender drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 1977, and Larry was going to follow in his footsteps. ȁ#x201c;My dream was to play hockey. That’s what I wanted to do,ȁ#x201d; Walker said. ȁ#x201c;A Canadian kid growing up playing hockey, Hall of Fame for me was the Hockey Hall of Fame. It wasn’t the Baseball Hall of Fame.ȁ#x201d; Walker tried for two years in Junior A hockey and found little success. That was the turning point. ȁ#x201c;I failed both years,” External link

A native of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, just outside Vancouver, Walker joins pitcher Ferguson Jenkins as the only Canadian-born players elected to the Hall of Fame, and it’s a source of pride. ȁ#x201c;To have this honor and to be from north of the border, to be the first position player, the second Canadian, I can’t find the words,” “I’m stuttering around here.ȁ#x201d; That’s easy to understand considering Walker’s past.
