"I will stay on the ballot in all remaining states and continue to gather delegates," Bernie said. "While Vice President Biden will be the nominee, we must continue working to assemble as many delegates as possible at the Democratic convention, where we will be able to exert significant influence over the party platform and other functions....Please stay in this fight with me. Let us go forward together, as our goal continues." -- Bernie Sanders, April 8, 2020

He is the first to ever play for the Rockies to make the Hall of Fame, and the first position player from Canada to earn the honor. Walker joins Derek Jeter in the Class of 2020, and his induction opens the door for future Rockies, just as his arrival in 1995 -- pacing the purple pinstripes to their first playoff appearance -- legitimized the franchise.
