This web sites for the soul purpose of retiring one of the all time greatest Expos ever, Number \"29\"! Tim Wallach By the early 1990s, Tim Wallach had become the Montreal Expos leader, and his veteran guidance was integral to many young players on the team. Yet, on December 24, 1992, Montreal traded him to the Dodgers for shortstop Tim Barker, a minor leaguer. Barker, a shortstop, never played a single game in the major leagues for anyone, especially the Expos, who had lost their leader in Wallach.

Wallach is the Expos\' career leader in games, at-bats, hits, doubles, RBI, total bases and extra-base hits. A solid defensive third baseman, he became the team captain late in his stay with Montreal, before finishing his fine career with the Dodgers and Angels in his native southern California.
The Former Expos 3B was never once placed on the DL as an Expo; this has been an expos problem from the time he was traded. Some Fan believe it may be the only cursed position on the team!
Please sign the petition and help me get his number retired before it\'s too late!
