Roberto Alomar

Canada’s Place in Baseball’s Hall of Fame

In July 2011 Toronto Blue Jay’s second baseman Roberto Alomar and general manager Pat Gillick were inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame, making it a first for Canadians in baseball history.  This marks the first time Canada’s only major league team will have a place to call its own in baseballs Hall of Fame in Cooperstown NY.  While there are already four other Blue Jays in the hall, but neither Phil Niekro, Dave Winfield, Paul Molitor nor Rickey Henderson were inducted as Jays.  Plenty of Canadians made the trek south of the border to watch Alomar and Gillick be inducted.
