Alomar Goes To Cooperstown

Roberto Alomar has become the first player to spend a majority of his career with the Toronto Blue Jays to be named to Baseball's Hall of Fame.

Alomar collected 2,724 hits, 210 homers, 1,134 RBIs, 1,508 runs and 474 steals in 2,379 games. The 10-time Gold Glover had a .300 career average over 17 seasons and was named ALCS MVP in 1992.

Alomar joins four other former Blue Jays at Cooperstown -- Phil Niekro, Dave Winfield, Paul Molitor and Rickey Henderson -- but none of them have the team's cap on their plaques. Alomar has the potential to be the first given that many of his best years came in Toronto.
