If you were a fan of the Montreal Expos back when the franchise was still playing at the Olympic Stadium, you certainly remember Vladimir Guerrero! The star batter played for eight seasons in Montreal, before moving to Los Angeles to play for the Angels of Anaheim.

Sunday, the four-time all-star player was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. Always a man of few words, the Dominican Republic native gave a speech in Spanish that lasted less than four minutes. He still found time to mention Montreal as the place where he got his first opportunity in the Big Leagues.

Guerrero was inducted as an Anaheim Angel – he wore the team’s cap to the ceremony. But Montreal clearly had a special place in his story. Even the scout that discovered his is from Montreal!

Guerrero has a career batting average of .318 and scored 449 home runs.
