Posted on

Larry Kenneth Robert Walker (born December 1, 1966) is a former right fielder in Major League Baseball. From 1989 through 2005, Walker played for the Montreal Expos (1989–1994), Colorado Rockies (1995–2004), and St. Louis Cardinals (2004–2005). He announced his retirement after Game 6 of the 2005 National League Championship Series. Walker’s career season came in 1997, when he hit .367 with 49 home runs, 130 RBI, 33 stolen bases, and 409 total bases, en route to becoming the first Canadian player to win the MVP Award. He became and remains the only player to have at least 25 stolen bases and a slugging percentage of more than .700 in a season. Walker’s 409 total bases in 1997 were the most in an NL season since Stan Musial’s 1948 season, although the mark was bettered by Barry Bonds in 2001.
