Former Montreal Expos legend Tim Raines finally finds a home in Copperstown
Finally Tim Raines can now call himself a Baseball hall of famer as on the 10th they finally made baseball’s legends apart of the hall of fame.
Here is the transcription from Jeff Idelson from The National Baseball Hall of Fame:
“Tim Raines, welcome to The Hall of Fame.
“Tim was rock solid playing in 23 seasons, only 20 players in the entire history of baseball played longer. He played for six (6) teams including 12 seasons with the Montreal Expos, he was a .294 lifetime hitter. It never hurts to add a leadoff hitter with MACH 1 speed to your team as the Hall of Fame just did. Tim spent his Major League career reaching base, wreaking havoc on the basepaths and scoring runs.
“One of baseball’s best players reaching base almost 4,000 times, 808 stolen bases, 1,571 runs scored, scored 100 or more runs six (6) times and led the National League in stolen bases four (4) consecutive seasons, stole 40 or more bases in a season 11 times. He was named to seven (7) consecutive All-Star Teams from 1981 to 1987, won a World Series with the Yankees in 1996.
“Rock, we will see you in Cooperstown, in July.”
Raines has been at Nat Bailey a few times as the roving baserunning and outfield coordinator with the blue Jays and has given both his time and effort to the Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation and there community. Congradulations to tim!
Congratulations to the #2017WBC MVP Marcus Stroman on his World Baseball Classic title! It has been amazing to watch you since 2012
