Two former players and one great editor were inducted Saturday into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame:
- Tom Henke, a longtime closer for the Blue Jays, posted a sparkling 2.67 ERA and struck out 861 batters in 789 2/3 career innings. He went out on top, registering a 1.82 ERA across 52 relief appearances in 1995, his final season.
- George “Dandy” Wood played from 1880-1892 and was the eighth Canadian to play in the major leagues. Born in Prince Edward Island, he tallied 1,467 career hits in 13 big league seasons.
- Allan Simpson is the founder of the incomparable Baseball America, which provides wide-ranging coverage of the sport from the amateur ranks to the pros. He is a native of Kelowna, British Columbia.
The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame is located in St. Marys, Ontario and was founded in 1983. There are now 89 members. A hearty congratulations goes to all three deserving inductees.
