Canada’s Larry Walker elected to Baseball Hall of Fame in final year on ballot

Former Colorado Rockies and Montreal Expos star slugger Larry Walker is officially a Baseball Hall of Famer.

In his final year on the ballot, the Maple Ridge, B.C., native earned 76.6 per cent of the vote to surpass the 75 per cent required for enshrinement.

Walker is the second Canadian elected to the Hall of Fame. Pitcher Fergie Jenkins of Chatham, Ont., was inducted in 1991.

More to come.
