Larry Walker

On this date in 1997, Larry Walker of the Rockies wins the NL MVP after hitting .366 with 49 home runs and 130 rbis.

"I'd never seen a forkball, never seen a slider. I didn't know they existed. I had never seen a good curveball. In Canada, as a kid, we'd play 10 baseball games a year. Fifteen tops. Nobody ever played baseball thinking about the major leagues. It was just a game, just something to do."
