Roberto Alomar is a Hall of Famer.
It's the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, but he belongs there just as much as he belongs in Cooperstown. On Saturday, Alomar was inducted into the Hall of Fame in St. Mary's, Ontario.
"I am blessed to have been able to play in Canada, and though some of you won't believe me, this is one of the happiest days of my life," Alomar said in his speech, wrote Ryan Pyette of the London Free Press .
Alomar was eight votes short of joining Andre Dawson in Cooperstown next moth. Dawson was elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2004.
Also inducted on Saturday were former reliever Paul Quantrill, late Minnesota Twins owner Calvin Griffith and statistician Allan Roth.
