Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Welcomes Alomar and Quantrill
The Baseball Writers Association of America may have got it wrong, but the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame is making it right.
This Saturday, Roberto Alomar will finally take his rightful place in the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in St. Mary’s.
He will be in good company as former Blue Jays relief pitcher Paul Quantrill will also be inducted, as well as the father of Sabremetrics Allan Roth, and former owner of the Minnesota Twins Calvin Griffith.
For those wishing to attend, the induction ceremony itself at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame is free, but since it starts at 11:00am it’s best to arrive early to ensure you get a good seat.
Rod Black will be the master of ceremonies for the event which will take place from 11:00am to 1:00pm. A celebrity autograph session will follow featuring Alomar, Quantrll, and many others including former Blue Jay Rob Butler.
Rumour has it Alex Anthopoulos and Paul Beeston will also be in attendance at the Induction Ceremony as well.
I’ll be there on Saturday and will hopefully get a chance to talk to Roberto Alomar and Paul Quantrill. Stay tuned for an Induction Ceremony wrap-up report on Saturday.
