On his election to the HOF.
(From ESPN)

"May 2, 1987 ? Returning with a bang

But Raines didn?t just run. He could hit, too. Raines missed the first month of the 1987 season when no one would sign him as a free agent (owners were later found guilty of collusion).

His first game back with the Expos was the most memorable of his career. He went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and hit a game-winning grand slam in the 10th inning to beat the Mets. He hit .330 with a career-high 18 home runs that season."

Pleasure seeing Tim Raines get inducted into the Nationals Hall of Fame over the weekend. Raines was a great ballplayer -- very envious of you Expos fans who had a chance to see him play in person for all those years.
