Larry Walker


The greatest position player this nation has ever produced may have played his last game.  I'm speaking, of course, about Maple Ridge, BC native Larry Walker.

If he has indeed played his last game, and he hasn't made that fact official yet, here are his career statistics.  2,160 hits, a .313 average, 383 home runs, 7 Gold Gloves, 230 stolen bases and one MVP honour.

Our greatest player once made the following statement.  "I don't mind saying hockey is the greatest game in the world."  Thanks for a great career Larry.  Thanks for leading the way with a maple leaf on your chest and a hockey stick in your hand.
