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. Honors All-Star (5): 1984-1985, 1987, 1989-1990; Gold Glove (3): 1985, 1988, 1990; 4th in 1987 National League Most Valuable Player voting! Most Doubles, National League (1982-1992) Tim Wallach ... 351 Ryne Sandberg... 320 Andre Dawson... 304 Most Games Played, National League (1982-1992) Ryne Sandberg... 1,692 Tim Wallach ... 1,691 Ozzie Smith... 1,625 Most RBI, National League (1982-1992) Andre Dawson... 1,038 Dale Murphy... 961 Tim Wallach ... 890 Darryl Strawberry... 857 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! PJ Chambers GFP QC
