ST. MARYS, Ont. - Speaking during the media session for the 2014 Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame inductions, former Montreal Expos star Tim Wallach believed early on in his career that the team would contend annually for the World Series. "The 1981 season when we made the playoffs, it was my first full year and such a great time," he said. "As good as we were, I thought that we would be in this position every year. But we never made the playoffs again. You never know, and thats what I tell my players now." Currently a bench coach with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Wallach was one of four Hall of Fame inductees that included former Expos broadcaster of 32 years, Dave Van Horne, former New York Yankees, Expos and Cincinnati Reds general manager, Canadian Murray Cook, and the late Jim Ridley, also a Canadian native that scouted for the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays for 29 years. Ridley also coached Team Canada at the 1988 Olympics, the Pan Am Games and the World Junior Championship. A five-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glove Award winner and two-time Silver Slugger Award winner, Wallach was drafted in 1979 by the Expos and played for the team from 1980 to 1992. He remains the franchises all-time leader in games played, hits, doubles, runs batted in and total bases. A California native, Wallach was known as a strong defensive third baseman, often compared to legendary third baseman Brooks Robinson. Following his time in Montreal, Wallach played three more seasons with the Dodgers and one with the Los Angeles Angels, retiring after the 1996 season. "With all of the great players that we had in Montreal, its pretty amazing that I am the all-time leader in all of the categories," he said. "It helped that I didnt like to miss games. Hopefully, someone gets the opportunity to break those records one day." Van Horne was the first English voice of the Expos in 1969 until 2000. A broadcaster with the Miami Marlins since 2001, Van Horne is known for his Up, up and away home run call and for his final call of the July 28, 1991 perfect game pitched by Dennis Martinez by saying El Presidente El Perfecto. "Many years later, I expected that people would be talking about Dennis Martinez and not my final call. It was a wonderful experience that day, much like most of time spent in Montreal," said Van Horne. A native of Sackville, New Brunswick, and current scout with the Tigers, Cook was a general manager with the Expos from 1984 until 1986. "Of the time spent in Montreal, I was most proud of how we acquired players and gave them second chances," said Cook. "We went out and got players like Dennis Martinez and Pascual Perez, who had several productive seasons in Montreal." Represented by his three children, Ridley was key in helping the Blue Jays establish a strong scouting presence in Canada from their inception. "My fathers passion was for teaching and helping players get better," said his son Shane Ridley. "His most proudest accomplishment was coaching Team Canada to a round robin win over Team USA at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games." The Saturday afternoon induction ceremony is the culmination of the annual three-day celebration of baseball in St. Marys, Ontario, the home of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. This years festivities also attracted many former players, including National Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher and Canadian Ferguson Jenkins. Kyle Hendricks Jersey .

The team would likely begin play in 2017, when the $1 billion retractable roof stadium is set to open next to the Georgia Dome to provide a new home for the NFL Falcons. "Our discussions with Major League Soccer continue, but we do not have a final agreement at this time," Kim Shreckengost, the chief administrative officer for Blanks AMB Group, said Tuesday in an email to The Associated Press. "We hope to complete the agreement soon, at which time we will make a formal announcement." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reported that a new team will be announced April 16. "We are continuing discussions with Arthur Blank to bring a Major League Soccer expansion team to Atlanta," said Dan Courtemanche, a spokesman for MLS. "However, we have not finalized an agreement at this time." The MLS has long coveted the Atlanta market, the largest in the U.S. without a team, as it moves toward its goal of expanding to 24 franchises. The 19-team league has already announced expansion franchises in New York City and Orlando that are scheduled to begin play next season, in addition to a provisional franchise in Miami owned by a group that includes David Beckham. That team is contingent oon a deal for a new soccer-specific stadium in south Florida.dddddddddddd There are no such concerns in Atlanta, where the Falcons new stadium was designed to accommodate an MLS team, providing Blank with additional revenue streams for the elaborate facility. While most MLS teams are moving toward smaller stadiums that are built solely for soccer, the Atlanta franchise would follow the model of teams in Seattle and Vancouver, which play in larger facilities downsized to provide a more intimate setting. For instance, Vancouvers BC Place has a curtain system that blocks off the upper deck, reducing capacity from 54,000 to 21,000. Atlantas new stadium will likely have a similar capability. Atlanta had two franchises in the old North American Soccer League. The Chiefs won the leagues first championship in 1968 but folded after the 1973 season, having spent their final year known as the Apollos. The Chiefs returned to the NASL in 1979 when the Colorado Caribous moved to Atlanta. That incarnation lasted only three seasons, never drawing as many as 8,000 fans a game before folding due to heavy financial losses. Atlanta has a team in a new version of the NASL, a league that ranks below MLS on the U.S. soccer ladder. The Silverbacks play at a 7,500-seat stadium on the outskirts of the city and are apparently not involved in talks on the MLS expansion team.
